Altus Power, a commercial-scale provider of clean electric power, and Brightcore Energy, a developer of renewable energy solutions for the commercial and institutional market, have completed 19 solar arrays across New Jersey.
The arrays, built on the rooftops of Brennan Investment Group’s portfolio of logistics buildings, represent 7.4 MW of solar arrays, which will be owned and operated by Altus Power and provide the benefits of clean, electric power to local communities.
“New Jersey has one of the fastest growing community solar programs in the country and Altus Power and Brightcore Energy have been working together to make this program a reality,” said Gregg Felton, Co-CEO and Co-Founder of Altus Power. “Brennan has proven to be an important partner for Altus in developing and constructing solar projects that will benefit the entire community.”
The 7.4 MWs add to Altus Power’s total of 120 MWs across New Jersey and are part of the expected 40 MWs to be completed in the state by the end of 2023. In total, the Brennan assets are projected to produce sufficient clean electricity while avoiding the equivalent of 5,200 metric tons of carbon dioxide annually.
“We are pleased to have the opportunity to work with Altus Power and Brennan to develop this project to bring green, sustainable energy to the surrounding communities. This project was rather unique in that it encompassed so many locations within one project. There was quite a bit of coordination to align all the logistics,” said Mike Richter, President of Brightcore Energy.
Altus Power currently serves more than 20,000 community solar subscribers nationwide. Community solar provides homeowners and renters access to the benefits of clean energy, such as power bill savings, without having to install solar panels at their residences.
