Brownfield Solar Project to Add 19 MW in New Jersey

Construction has begun on a 19-MW brownfield solar project in White Township, Warren County, New Jersey that is made possible through a public-private partnership and includes environmental remediation of the site. 

The Foul Rift solar project — a fixed-tilt, bifacial grid supply project — is expected to reach commercial operation by September of this year. The project supports New Jersey in achieving its goal of 100 percent clean electricity by 2035. 

“This project is the perfect example of the use of the renewable energy subsidy to not only reduce the regional carbon footprint, but also remediate environmental damages that would not have otherwise been addressed,” said Chris Ichter, Executive Vice President at CEP Renewables. “We are pleased to have been able to leverage our prior experience on similarly challenging landfill and brownfield solar projects to develop a successful public-private partnership with White Township that will positively impact generations to come.” 

The site for the Foul Rift solar project had been home to a composting facility for nearly three decades and had a long history of violations from the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection. CEP’s development of this project will complete the environmental remediation at this site while also providing reliable clean energy, pollinator habitats and greater tax revenue for the local community. 

In exchange for certain interconnection easement rights and as part of its partnership with White Township, CEP also agreed to create a porous pavement walking path circulating throughout the Township’s recreational fields.
