The New Jersey Board of Public Utilities (NJBPU) says that New Jersey now has over 100 MW of solar capacity, with more than 4,340 projects statewide.
years ago, the state had only six solar installations, NJBPU notes.
Since that time, New Jersey has established a program that incorporates
both energy efficiency and renewable energy.
integrated approach to solar development includes a strong renewable
portfolio standard with a solar electric set-aside, excellent
interconnection and net-metering standards that have made it easier for
systems to connect to the distribution system, a solar renewable energy
certificate financing model that provides energy credits, and
additional long-term financing for those who invest in solar.
