KDC Solar has completed a 4-MW solar carport project for CentraState, a healthcare provider in Freehold Township, New Jersey. Combined with a previously completed ground-mount array, CentraState can now generate 61% of its energy consumption via on-site solar.
â€śOur solar holdings are not only providing significant savings on our energy costs, but also allowing us to decrease our carbon footprint and environmental impact,â€ť said Thomas W. Scott, FACHE, Senior Vice President and Chief Operating Officer at CentraState. â€śIn addition, it will help support Freehold Townshipâ€™s electrical grid.â€ť
The combined solar ground-mount system and new carport solar system makes CentraState the largest solar-powered hospital in New Jersey. In addition to generating solar energy, the carports provide shade and weather protection as well as enhanced lighting for patients, visitors and employees. KDC Solar installed the solar carports with no capital costs to CentraState.
â€śWe are delighted to have partnered with CentraState on yet another solar project. They have clearly recognized the multiple benefits that this new solar carport will deliver to not only the hospital, but the Township of Freehold and the community at large as well,â€ť said Alan Epstein, President and CEO of KDC Solar.
