Enfinity America Corp. has completed a 1.1 MW fixed-tilt solar array on the rooftop of a Macy's distribution center in Edison, N.J. The development covers the purchase, construction and interconnection of the solar panels and related components.
‘This installation for Macy's is a good example of what the future of solar PV will look like: more roof-mounted, distributed-generation plants located near areas of higher electricity demand,’ says Rafael Dobrzynski, CEO of Enfinity.
Through a 20-year power purchase agreement, Enfinity owns the solar energy plant and will sell the electricity generated to Macy's at a fixed rate. Local utility PSE&G also provided long-term financing for the project through its SREC-based solar loan program. The project was co-developed by SunConnect.
According to Bill Lyon, Macy's vice president for energy management, this is the 42nd rooftop PV installation for Macy's.
