PSE&G Building 11.18 MW Solar Farm On N.J. Landfill


New Jersey-based Public Service Electric and Gas Co. (PSE&G) has started construction on a 11.18 MW solar farm atop the closed Kinsley landfill in New Jersey.

The Kinsley Solar Farm is the company's third landfill project through its Solar 4 All program. The utility says the project will install 36,841 solar panels on 35 acres of the 140-acre landfill, owned by Kinsley's Landfill Inc. Conti Enterprises Inc. was selected as the engineering, procurement and construction contractor for the project.

‘Two clear goals of New Jersey's energy policy are to support solar development in the state and maintain our scarce open space,’ says Ralph LaRossa, PSE&G president and chief operating officer.
