New Jersey regulators approve PSE&G solar energy installation program

The New Jersey Board of Public Utilities approved a plan to let Public Service Electric & Gas to move forward with its Solar 4 All solar power loan project that will allow the utility to invest some $440 million building solar energy projects on former landfills and other brownfield locations.

Program costs will be passed on to PSE&G ratepayers, according to the New Jersey Star Ledger.

PSE&G’s Solar 4 All program would build about 42 MW of solar energy arrays on landfills and brownfield properties involved in the program. Another 3 MW would be built in smaller projects, according to the report.

A separate loan program would support the construction of about 97.5 MW worth of solar energy.
