SOLARWORKS NJ AWARDED $7.5 MILLION CONTRACT
April 09, 2010
TURNERSVILLE, NJ - SolarWorks NJ, LLC, a leading developer of turnkey solar electricity installations and renewable energy solutions, today announced they were awarded the contract to construct a solar energy system for the Medford Township Sewer Treatment Plant.
Under the agreement, SolarWorks NJ will construct a 1.5 MW solar energy system, designed to offset a majority of the Sewer Treatment Plant’s electric usage. The system is estimated to generate approximately 2,227,620 kilowatt hours per year, reducing carbon dioxide emissions by 1,332 tons annually. This is equivalent to reducing 3,196,974 miles of driving and planting 205 acres of trees.
The award was announced by the Medford City Council on March 23, 2010. Nine vendors submitted proposals to the Township including Trinity Solar and Ray Angelini, Inc.
Steve Masapollo, CEO said “I am very pleased with the selection committees choice. Everyone at SolarWorks NJ and our partner companies worked very hard to make this a reality. I believe that our ability to offer a dual energy conservation system was an important component that complemented the savings offered through the PPA.”
SolarWorks NJ offered Medford Township a dual energy conservation system called the Solar Plus System. The Solar Plus Systemis unique in that it integrates two systems into one: the Solar Energy System coupled with the Clean Energy System.
The system will save Medford Township approximately $7.4 million over the next 15 years without spending any taxpayer money. Construction is expected to commence after state and local approvals have been obtained.
SolarWorks NJ has an additional 5 MW of financed solar energy projects for 2010.
