HOLMDEL TOWNSHIP , NJ–(Marketwired – May 22, 2013) – OCI Solar Power has commenced commercial operations at its new solar farm in Holmdel Township, New Jersey – its second solar power plant in New Jersey.
The solar facility was developed on 34 acres on Holmdel Road in Monmouth County and is now operational, generating power from the sun using more than 13,000 solar modules on-site.
The project, constructed with leading solar PV technology, is 3 megawatts (AC) in size and can power more than 2,000 homes during daylight hours.
“The completion of the Holmdel solar facility is another big step toward creating a more sustainable and green future for New Jersey and the Holmdel community,” said Tony Dorazio, the President of OCI Solar Power.
“It’s the second of two projects for OCI Solar in New Jersey, and we are grateful for the community’s partnership and support,” Dorazio added.
OCI Solar Power plans to sell the electricity it produces to regional power distributor PJM for providing power to area homes and businesses. According to the company, the additional sustainable energy source will mean increased efficiencies and renewable energy costs for the area.
OCI Solar Power is also currently developing a 400 MW solar power project-one of the nation’s largest-in San Antonio, Texas and another 100 MW nationwide.
OCI Solar Power’s other New Jersey solar facility in operation is located on South Delsea Drive in Vineland.
