PSEG Solar Source announced that it has acquired a 15 MW DC solar project from Juwi Solar (JSI) in Milford, Delaware, and plans to begin construction work this month. Based on signed agreements, JSI will oversee, procure, engineer and also perform maintenance and operation services for this solar project.
PSEG Solar Source’s President, Diana Drysdale, said that the company was pleased with the plan to construct the PSEG Milford Solar Farm in Delaware. She also added that PSEG Solar will continue to work on projects dealing with renewable and solar energy to provide emission-free and clean energy with the help of state and local policies.
PSEG Solar Source, an energy company located in New Jersey, is a subsidiary of PSEG. The company has obtained solar renewable energy credits and power purchase agreement for energy from Delaware Municipal Electric Corporation for the solar project to be set up as the largest in Delaware. The project is expected to be completed by the end of 2012, and is expected to generate around 100 jobs during the process of construction. The PSEG Milford Solar Farm will be located in Kent County on an area of 80 ac, and will carry a project cost of 50 million US dollars.
Jack Markell, Governor of Delaware, said that in addition to the 30 MW of already existing solar installations, the Milford Solar Farm, which is a joint venture of PSEG, the Town of Milford and DEMEC, will elevate Delaware as the national leader in per capita of solar deployment. He also added that his state welcomed PSEG Solar Source for providing clean energy and creating jobs for the people.
