Installation Is the Largest Rooftop Community Solar Project Completed in New Jersey

Monroe Township, NJ – November 30, 2023 – Monroe Township Mayor Stephen Dalina and other community leaders joined Solar Landscape and others to energize two new community solar projects in Middlesex County, which can now provide solar energy at a discount to 1,437 nearby residents.

The installation in Monroe Township is now New Jersey’s largest completed rooftop community solar project. Hosted on a commercial warehouse owned by global real estate investment management firm Heitman Capital Management, the 4.99-megawatt (DC) array will serve nearly 830 homes.

Subscriptions are still available to low- and moderate-income households in Middlesex County at www.solarlandscape.com.

Together, the two installations have a capacity of nearly 8.8 megawatts. They were designed and are owned and operated by Asbury Park-based Solar Landscape, one of the nation’s community solar leaders.

“Providing access to affordable renewable energy to our residents, without having to put solar panels on their homes, offers an option to reduce energy costs and is environmentally responsible,” said Monroe Township Mayor Stephen Dalina.  “We welcome this state-sponsored community solar program offering through Solar Landscape to Monroe Township as it improves affordability.”

“As a proud supporter of clean energy and the fight against climate change, I would like to congratulate everyone involved in bringing this record-breaking community solar project to completion,” said New Jersey State Senator Linda Greenstein. “Community solar has proven to be an equitable, cost-effective way of providing clean and renewable energy to our most vulnerable residents of New Jersey, helping both lower customer utility costs and help our state reach our goal of 100% renewable energy by 2035.”

The rooftop community solar installation in South Brunswick can now serve more than 600 nearby households.

The 3.84-megawatt rooftop project in South Brunswick is on a Heitman Capital Management rooftop on Corn Road and will serve more than 600 households.

The recently energized installations in Middlesex County join Solar Landscape’s growing national portfolio of community solar projects. Earlier this month, it earned a 2023 American-Made Sunny Award Grand Prize from the U.S. Department of Energy. In August, Solar Landscape announced a 133-site partnership with self-storage leader Public Storage that will serve more than 10,000 homes in Illinois, Maryland and New Jersey. 

“Thanks to leaders like Heitman, Mayor Dalina, and South Brunswick, the momentum for community solar continues to build,” said Solar Landscape CEO and co-founder Shaun Keegan. “With record-breaking projects like these, we are creating new models for how solar can benefit everyone – especially lower-income households — while preserving open space.”
