New Jersey approves 77.61 MW of community solar serving low- and moderate-income communities

The New Jersey Board of Public Utilities (NJBPU) approved 45 applications to participate in the first year of its Community Solar Energy Pilot Program. While NJBPU reserved 40% of the pilot program’s capacity for projects in which at least 51% of the capacity serves low- to moderate-income (LMI) communities, 100% of the approved renewable energy projects will serve LMI households in the state. The Board Order, including a list of approved applicants is available here.

The approved projects will all be located on landfills, brownfields, rooftops or parking canopies. Some of the approved applicants include community groups, government entities and private developers. The projects represent 77.61 MW of solar energy capacity.
