Mercury Solar Systems Completes its Largest Solar Project In New Jersey
Located in Manalapan, the solar farm is comprised of 12,000 photovoltaic (PV) solar panels that will combine to generate up to 3.6 MW of renewable electricity. The system, which is installed on the future site of a 500,000 sq. ft. shopping center, will reduce the state's carbon footprint by an estimated 3,100 tons a year.
For New York-based Mercury Solar Systems the Manalapan project is by far the largest solar system in its portfolio. Founded in 2006, the company, which is a subsidiary of Mercury Energy Inc., designs solar systems for both commercial and also residential applications.
In its six year history Mercury Solar Systems has grown its installed capacity to over 35 MW. The majority of this capacity comes from roof mounted systems. The company has expanded its reach to markets in Connecticut, Pennsylvania and Massachusetts. However, with three offices in New Jersey Mercury Solar's market focus may be in garden state.
Frank Alfano, CEO of Mercury Solar Systems said the successful installation the Manalapan system "underscores the continued strength of the utility-scale solar market in New Jersey."
