Commercial PV developer Solis Partners has installed a 125 kW ground-mounted solar array for the Church of the Resurrection in the Burlington County township of Delran, N.J.
This project marks the fourth solar installation that Solis has completed within the Catholic Diocese of Trenton, which spans Burlington, Mercer, Monmouth and Ocean counties. The 518-panel array, which is installed behind the parish center, will offset 80% of the parish's annual electricity usage, the company says. The system will produce 165,000 kWh of electricity annually.
Under a power purchase agreement, Solis Partners will retain ownership of the system for 15 years, during which time it will maintain and operate the system. The electricity generated will be sold to the Church of the Resurrection. After 15 years, the parish will have the option to assume ownership of the system and receive free electricity for the remaining life of the system.
