PSEG Wants To Put More Solar Panels In N.J. Landfills, Brownfields

Categories: Solar Panels

To some, the word “landfill” conjures thoughts of garbage and waste.

But to others, the word has a different meaning… energy.

On Wednesday, PSE&G announced that it filed a request with the New Jersey Board of Public Utilities (NJBPU) to extend its “Solar 4 All” program, which utilizes rooftops, parking lots, utility poles and landfills/brownfields for large-scale, grid connected solar projects.

If approved, the extension will allow the company to invest about $275 million to design and construct an additional 100 megawatts of grid-connected solar capacity on landfills and brownfields in New Jersey by the end of 2021, according to PSE&G news release.

Currently, the Solar 4 All project operates more than 150,000 solar panels at eight landfill and brownfield solar farms on 170 acres of landfill and brownfield space, PSE&G stated.

The proposed extension would nearly triple the amount of landfill and brownfield solar that PSE&G will own and operate in New Jersey, company officials stated.
