Senators Frank Lautenberg and Robert Menendez of New Jersey also said that the Dow Jones & Company project is "groundbreaking in every sense of the word."
The solar power system at Dow Jones' 200-acre corporate campus will total 4.1 megawatts when it is completed early next year. The system will be one of the nation's largest corporate solar power installations, says Dow Jones, and is expected to generate the equivalent of 15 percent of current electricity needs for the facility.
"I salute Dow Jones for its leadership. The company is demonstrating that a clean energy future is both possible and profitable," Senator Lautenberg said.
"This will be one of the most outstanding examples of what America's clean energy future looks like, and it will be yet another innovation in the long innovative history of Dow Jones & Company," added Senator Menendez. We need to embrace the potential of a clean energy future, and it is through bold investments like this that we are doing so."
The solar energy system is being installed by Sunpower Corp. and partially financed through PSE&G's Solar Loan Program, through which PSE&G offers loans for solar power.
