KDC Solar, a company developing solar projects, has started commercial operation of a 2.2 MW single-axis tracker solar system at Vineland in New Jersey. The ground-mounted solar system is operated through KDC Solar’s subsidiary, KDC Solar ACF at the Atlantic Coast Freezers property.
Annually about 3.4 million kWh of solar power will be generated from the solar system, which will cater to 100% electricity needs of the Atlantic Coast Freezers storehouse location. J&J Real Estate Associates owns this storehouse.
According to the President of the Atlantic Coast Freezers, Sam Sorbello, the company is glad to be able to enjoy dual advantage from the solar plant, which includes long term presence and lower electric costs. Additionally, the company has been able to prove its environmental stewardship to the state and the local people by reducing the carbon footprint.
Hal Kamine who serves as the Chief Executive Officer of KDC Solar stated that the company is happy to execute this solar project which will render inexpensive, long-term and clean solar energy to the Atlantic Coast Freezers. He added the unit is another example for KDC Solar as it follows its dedication towards 'behind-the-meter' solar systems for governments, institutions and commerce that offers long period jobs to the state.
A successor of Kamine Development, KDC Solar has 20 MW of "behind the meter" solar facilities operational in six different places. Over 60 MW of "behind the meter" solar projects is constructed and permitted by the company for institutions and businesses across New Jersey.
