Navisun, a solar power producer that owns and operates distributed and small utility-scale solar projects, bought a 4.5 MW community solar project in Linden, New Jersey.
Community solar provides customers clean locally sourced power that costs less.
The Linden Hawk Rise Solar Project is located on the city of Linden’s landfill, in Union County, New Jersey.
CS Energy was instrumental in developing the project and is currently constructing the project. Navisun will own and operate the completed facility which is expected to be in service by the end of the second quarter of 2021.
When complete, the Linden Hawk Rise Solar Project will convert a closed landfill site into a productive solar farm that will provide about 1,000 residents with clean electricity at savings.
The Linden Hawk Rise Solar project is part of New Jersey’s Year 1 Community Solar Energy Pilot Program, which enables utility customers to access clean energy generation by participating in solar energy projects located remotely from their property. To expand equitable access to clean electricity, the New Jersey Board of Public Utilities encouraged developers to make the program readily available to low- and moderate-income customers.
