New Jersey-based utility Public Service Electric and Gas Co. (PSE&G) has filed a request with the New Jersey Board of Public Utilities (NJBPU) to extend its Solar 4 All program.
If approved, the extension would allow PSE&G to invest approximately $275 million to design and construct 10 more grid-connected projects totaling 100 MW on landfills and brownfields in its electric service territory by the end of 2021.
Solar 4 All is a 125 MW universal solar program that utilizes rooftops, parking lots, utility poles and landfills/brownfields for large-scale, grid-connected solar projects. The NJBPU initially approved the program in 2009 for 80 MW and extended it in 2013 for an additional 45 MW of solar capacity. The program currently has 115 MW in service through 174,000 pole-attached solar units and 28 centralized solar projects. The remaining 10 MW of the currently approved 125 MW total will be in service by the end of 2016.
