New Jersey surpasses 1 gigawatt of installed solar energy |

New Jersey’s solar industry surpassed 1 gigawatt of installed energy, the state Board of Public Utilities announced today.

The more than 20,300 solar projects installed statewide with the help of subsidy credits include residences, businesses and government facilities, along with landfills and brownfields, according to a BPU news release detailing the milestone.

One gigawatt is enough solar electricity to power 139,000 homes, according to the Solar Energy Industries Association.

In a statement accompanying the announcement, Gov. Chris Christie called the 1 gigawatt barrier “an incredible achievement,” adding “it is clear that New Jersey will remain one of the largest solar energy markets in the United States.”
