Harnessing the energy of the sun is nothing new to us. We have built, invested in or operate over 237K solar panels at 19 solar farms nationwide, and today we celebrated the completion of a 13-megawatt solar project with NJR Clean Energy Ventures at our South Brunswick, New Jersey landfill. With more than 40K solar panels, this project provides enough clean energy to power 1,360 homes annually.
