New Jersey Hosts Large Solar Power System
At the inauguration, New Jersey Senator Jon Corzine said, "This solar field represents a step forward for both our economy and our environment."
BP received some funding from the New Jersey Clean Energy Program, which provides rebates for PV and other clean energy systems using funding from a systems benefits charge contributed by the state's utility ratepayers. The Virginia Alliance for Solar Energy (VASE) also contributed to the project. VASE is a nonprofit organization whose mission is to foster solar projects in the Mid-Atlantic region; it is managed by the Energy Division of the Virginia Department of Mines, Minerals, and Energy.
