PSE&G announced today that its ILR Solar Farm is in service, supplying renewable energy directly to the utility's energy grid. The 7.75MW-dc universal solar power plant covers 21 acres of the closed ILR Landfill with 23,834 solar panels that will generate enough electricity to power more than 1,200 average-size New Jersey homes annually.

Industrial Land Reclaiming, Inc. owns the ILR Landfill and PSE&G will operate the solar farm as part of its Solar 4 All® program. 

"The development of universal solar projects like this one benefits New Jersey and our customers," said Courtney McCormick - vice president, renewables and energy solutions - PSE&G. "Transforming this property into a solar power plant adds to New Jersey's renewable energy resources without reducing the state's open space, and connecting the solar panels directly to the PSE&G energy grid ensures that all of our electric customers share both the costs and the benefits of solar energy."

The ILR Solar Farm is one of 31 Solar 4 All universal solar power plants that are in service and the ninth built on a landfill or brownfield site. The Solar 4 All program has utilized more than 190 acres of landfill and brownfield space by installing more than 174,000 solar panels, capable of generating 52.5 megawatts-dc of solar energy, which is enough to power about 8,500 homes annually.

Vanguard Energy Partners was the engineering, procurement and construction contractor for the ILR Solar Farm.
