Solar energy is the cleanest, most abundant, renewable energy source available. And the U.S. has some of the richest solar resources shining across the nation. Our solar farm will decrease America's dependence on foreign sources of oil and provide the local workforce with quality jobs. As global climate change impacts the way we conduct business and harness energy, solar power is leading the way as a renewable energy source that creates sustainable economic growth while reducing harmful greenhouse gas emissions.
EFP has the capacity for up to 3 MW of solar power occupying ten acres of internally grid connected land - to generate enough electricity to power as many as 2,000 homes. Successful installation will result in one of the largest solar arrays in New Jersey and will provide a myriad of benefits to our tenants and local community. These benefits include:
- Lowering electricity costs for EFP’s eco-industrial park tenants
- Supporting New Jersey’s Renewable Energy Standard
- Offsetting harmful CO2 emissions through clean energy production
- Providing training facilities for local sustainable energy technician programs
