Solar in New Jersey
Solar power in New Jersey has been aided by a Renewable Portfolio Standard which requires that 22.5% of New Jersey's electricity come from renewable resources by 2021.
New Jersey is second in the nation in the total number of homes and businesses with solar panels installed, and the second largest solar state in the U.S. with 137 megawatts of installed solar power in 2010, almost a 140% increase over 2009 and 517% increase over 2008. In addition, New Jersey became the second state after to install over 100 MW in a single year in 2010.
In 2009, Public Service Enterprise Group, the largest utility company in New Jersey, announced plans to install solar panels on 200,000 utility poles in its service area in a project costing $773 million, the largest such project in the world. This ground-breaking project is expected to be completed in 2013. In addition, PSEG is building four solar farms in Edison, Hamilton, Linden, and Trenton.
