Lockheed Martin has cut the ribbon on a 2.5 MW DC solar photovoltaic project at its facility in Moorestown, N.J.
New Jersey-headquartered Pfister Energy designed, built and constructed the project, which is located on 8 acres of land and represents Lockheed Martin’s largest solar project to date.
The ground-mount facility is expected to reduce Lockheed Martin’s annual electric usage by 5%. Pfister Energy says the project is estimated to produce 3,371 MWh annually and 79,407 MWh over its 25-year lifetime.
“Lockheed Martin has made great strides in clean energy and energy efficiency by developing and offering these technologies to their clients,” states Wayne Pfisterer, President of Pfister Energy. “In this case, Lockheed Martin is taking this a step further by implementing clean energy on one of its own facilities. Pfister Energy is proud to work with Lockheed Martin on this solar project and to continue to drive its shared vision of a new clean energy future.”
“Lockheed Martin strives to achieve environmentally conscious business operations. Our environmental stewardship efforts extend to our facilities across the world,” says Jim Sheridan, vice president and general manager at Lockheed’s Moorestown location. “I am particularly proud that our Moorestown facility is home to the corporation’s largest solar field, which is part of our pledge to quadruple our on-site renewable generation by 2020.”
