KDC Solar LLC, a developer, owner and operator of solar power facilities announced today that it has begun construction on a 23.5-megawatt solar photovoltaic system in Jackson, New Jersey, that will supply Six Flags Great Adventure with clean renewable energy and virtually all its electrical load at the park. When completed, the project will be the largest net metered solar installation in the State of New Jersey.
The solar facility will produce approximately 30 million kilowatt hours of clean electricity in the first year. Additionally, the environmental benefits of the project will be equivalent to providing power for 2,787 homes for a year or removing approximately 108,000 cars from the road.
Debt financing for the project was provided by Seminole Financial Services through a construction and a permanent loan facility. Development capital and project equity was arranged by GoldenSet Capital Partners in its role as sub-advisor to the North Sky Capital Alliance Fund II.
Have you checked out our YouTube page?
We have a ton video interviews and additional content on our YouTube page. Recently we debuted Power Forward! -- a collaboration with BayWa r.e. to discuss higher level industry topics as well as best practices / trends for running a solar business today.
Our longer running side project is The Pitch -- in which we have awkward discussions with solar manufacturers and suppliers about their new technology and ideas so that you don't have to. We've discusses everything from residential rail-less deck attaching and home solar financing to large-scale energy storage value stacking and utility-driven new home solar + storage microgrids.
We also post our Project of the Year announcements there! Interviews with this year's winners will be up starting the week of Nov. 8. Head there and subscribe today to stay on top of all this extra stuff.
