New Jersey reaches 1 GW of installed solar power

The New Jersey Board of Public Utilities announced last week the state’s solar industry has surpassed 1 GW of installed solar energy. According to the board, the state had 1,008.4 MW of solar capacity installed through 20,340 solar projects as of the end of February.

According to a statement from the board, the state has more than 15,500 residential solar installations, 3,000 commercial solar installations, 300 solar installations at schools and 200 government solar projects.

New Jersey passed legislation last year that couples acceleration of the renewable portfolio standard for solar energy with a reduction of the solar alternate compliance payment levels. According to the board, the state is on target to meet or exceed its 22.5 percent renewable energy standard portfolio by 2021.
