From landfill to clean energy: NJ Superfund site transformed into solar panel project

July 17, 2018

This month, Republic Services and New Jersey Resources Clean Energy Venture (CEV) hosted a ribbon cutting ceremony to mark the completion of their clean energy project, which consisted of 40,000 solar panels installed at a South Brunswick Superfund site. From 1959-1979, the site served as a landfill before undergoing remediation in the early 1980s; “[s]ince then, the Superfund site's 68 acres of land have remained unused.” The $20 million solar panel project, which took five years to complete, “was built through unionized labor and funded by New Jersey Resources with no cost to taxpayers.”
