Retail giant, Macy's, has added a new solar array to the rooftop of its Edison, New Jersey distribution centre. The 1.1MW project, completed by Enfinity America is operational and expected to generate nearly 1.3 million kWh of energy per year. Enfinity owns the solar plant and under a 20-year PPA, will sell the electricity produced to Macy's at a fixed rate. Co-developed by SunConnect, the project received longer-term financing through PSE&G's SREC-based solar loan program.
Rafael Dobrzynski, Enfinity's CEO said, "This installation for Macy's is a good example of what the future of solar PV will look like; more roof-mounted, distributed generation plants located near areas of higher electricity demand. It's also a good example of how it takes robust, experienced companies - such as the team on this project - to work together through a highly complex process to deliver a successful installation. The post-1603 solar market demands a high degree of development experience and ready access to financing."
