Douglas Fisher

The New Jersey Board of Public Utilities (NJBPU) has authorized an settlement with the Rutgers University Agrivoltaics Program (RAP) to facilitate the event and implementation of a Dual-Use Solar Energy Pilot Program over the following three years.

The program is designed to display and examine the compatibility of agricultural or horticultural manufacturing with solar photovoltaic infrastructure on the identical property. It will enable for the set up and operation of as much as 200 MW DC of solar set up capability over three years, extendable by the board to as much as 300 MW DC over 5 years. Individual solar tasks can be restricted to 10 MW DC.

The program and the outcomes from its related analysis necessities will inform a everlasting program that features requirements for development and operation of dual-use solar energy tasks.

“The approval of this pilot program will provide an avenue for New Jersey farmers to gain an additional revenue source while also benefiting from the governor’s clean energy strategy,” NJDA Secretary Douglas Fisher says. “The outstanding work being done by the Rutgers Experiment Station is an example of agricultural innovation and opportunity.”

The pilot program will present incentives to solar electrical era amenities, situated on unpreserved farmland, which plan to keep up the land’s energetic agricultural or horticultural use. The NJBPU anticipates that tasks searching for to take part in this system might be decided after a aggressive course of.
