Solar Frontier announced that it has supplied modules to a 3.8 megawatt (MW) installation for the Public Service Electric and Gas Company (PSE&G) electric utility in New Jersey, the U.S. Juwi solar developed the project.
Solar Frontier supplied 29,400 CIS thin film modules to the Mill Creek Solar Farm in Burlington County, New Jersey. The solar farm is part of PSE&G's Solar 4 All program. The project was developed, designed and built by juwi solar.
575 average-sized homes will be powered by the project and Solar Frontier states that the Mill Creek Solar Farm is the largest thin film project in the state. PSE&G owns and manages the solar farm and under the Solar 4 All program, will develop 80 MW of solar power in New Jersey, enough for 13,000 average-sized homes.
"We are proud to have worked closely with Solar Frontier on its first deployment of modules to a large-scale utility project in the U.S.," said Michael Martin, CEO of juwi solar. "We firmly believe performance will meet or exceed our clients’ expectations and look forward to a continued relationship with Solar Frontier on future installations."
"A main objective of our Solar 4 All program was to help develop a strong solar industry," said Al Matos, vice president, renewables and energy solutions, PSE&G. "By partnering with a wide range of companies like juwi solar and Solar Frontier, we are helping businesses take root and grow, creating jobs and helping New Jersey to meet its renewable energy goals."
