WATCH: PSE&G debuts community solar project in N.J. landfill

We here at Solar Builder get excited about the possibilities of community solar. So, if there is news about a new community solar project, we will likely try to run it. This latest story comes from Public Service Electric and Gas Company (PSE&G) in New Jersey (check out their blog):

A 12.93 MW DC L&D Solar Farm was just completed, spanning more than 50 acres (and 140,000 panels) and will be the largest solar farm that PSE&G has built to date when it goes into service later this year.

PSE&G worked with the N.J. Board of Public Utilities to reclaim unusable land in the state, converting more than 150 acres of landfill or brownfield space into clean energy producing solar farms.

Be sure to watch the video above for the full story.
