New Jersey, the nation's most densely populated state, has 25 solar array projects making up more than a quarter of its utility-scale solar capacity, according to state data.
Built by developer PVOne in partnership with EDF Renewables, the 28.9-megawatt solar farm on 117 acres of a former chemical plant in Toms River, is one of them.
“We're a very small state, a very dense state. Land is hard to come by," said Elliott Shanley
The Toms River project went live in April and is now the largest solar facility in New Jersey and the biggest on an EPA Superfund site, according to EDF.
