NJ Meadowlands landfill to go solar
Another case study we’re looking at: The New Jersey Meadowlands Commission (NJMC) has proposed the construction of a 5 MW solar farm to be built on top of the Erie Landfill. This would be the largest solar array built in New Jersey to date and could potentially power up to 600 homes per year. The NJMC has put out a Request for Information from companies who would be interested in working on the project. The company chosen would close and cap the landfill, manufacture and operate the panels and, subsequently, sell the resulting energy to the Public Service Electric & Gas energy grid.
