Black River Farm Solar Project

enXco, an EDF EN Company, has completed the development and construction of a 143 kW solar project located on the grounds of the Black River Farm equestrian training facility in Ringoes, New Jersey, USA.

The project consists of a combination of 63 kW of roof mounted and an 80 kW ground mounted PV panels supplied by Evergreen Solar.

In addition, the project uses a web-based monitoring system provided by Noveda Technologies.

enXco is the owner, financier, and co-developer while Atlantic Solar Assets, a subsidiary of Clean Energy Holdings co-developed the project with Vanguard Energy Partners, LLC and New Jersey Solar Solutions as installer.

Amy Jorgenson, President of Black River Farm, said: ‘When planning construction of the new barn at our training centre we wanted to look at the economic feasibility of renewable energy. We quickly became satisfied that this was a good way to protect us against the uncertainty of rising energy costs. It helps with our long-range business planning to know that before too many years this system will pay for itself and provide us with free electricity for many years after that.’
