NEWARK, N.J., Nov. 5, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Public Service Electric and Gas Company (PSE&G) is building its largest community solar project on the closed L&D Landfill in Burlington County, NJ. When it goes into service later this year, the L&D Solar Farm will cover more than 50 acres with 41,720 solar panels that will generate enough electricity to power 2,000 New Jersey homes annually. It is the latest of PSE&G's grid connected community solar facilities that give new life to landfill space and produces power up to 40 percent cheaper than residential rooftop solar installations. Community solar projects like these allow all customers to get the benefits of solar power.
