KDC Solar to build 6.1-MW solar facility at Lawrenceville School in New Jersey
KDC Solar LLC is developing a 6.1-MW ground mounted solar facility at The Lawrenceville School on the school’s campus in Lawrence Township, New Jersey.
The solar facility, which will generate about 8,600,000 kilowatt hours of solar electricity per year, will be installed by J. Fletcher Creamer & Son Inc. The solar facility will supply 90% of the electric power needs for The Lawrenceville School facilities.
KDC Solar signed a procurement and construction contract with Creamer. The project is expected to use nearly 25,000 high efficiency 245 watt panels manufactured by SolarWorld Americas.
