PSEG building solar farms--and not just in New Jersey

PSEG has been leading the way when it comes to adding solar energy capacity--and not
just in New Jersey where it is the state's largest public utility. Yesterday, the energy company dedicated a 19-megawatt solar farm in Queen Creek, Arizona.

It joins other solar projects developed by PSEG Solar Source, which is PSEG's non-utility subsidiary and which owns or is constructing a total of 69.2 megawatts of solar power.

PSEG's regulated-utility subsidiary, PSE&G (which delivers electricity and gas to a large portion of New Jersey) is running slightly ahead of its subsidiary sister with 71 megawatts
in its solar tool belt.

At the dedication ceremony, PSEG Chairman Ralph Izzo noted that PSE&G owns the second largest pole-attached solar program in the world, while PSEG Solar Source owns the second largest solar farm in Ohio, the second largest solar farm in Florida,
and is building what will be the largest solar farm in Delaware.

This energy franchise obviously knows how to win games at home and on the road.

Check out the time-lapse video which tracks the Arizona project, from start to finish, in three minutes. It's like watching a downtown office project getting built in China, in real time.
