Amazon, Installing Biggest Solar Array in New Jersey, Advances on Its Renewables Target FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailPrint分享PV Magazine:Amazon is not fooling around when it comes to renewable energy. The company’s web services division has set a mandate to move to 100% renewable energy, a goal that it shares with fellow technology giants Apple, ebay, Facebook, Google and Microsoft. But the parent company has not been idle either, and in May Amazon announced that it would install up to 41 MW of solar on 15 fulfillment centers by the end of the year.Yesterday the company announced that one of these installations has come online, which also happens to be the largest rooftop PV plants in the state of New Jersey. Roughly 20,000 Hanwha Q-Cells PV modules are mounted on Panel Claw Polar Bear III racking on the roof of an Amazon warehouse in Carteret, New Jersey, across the water from Staten Island, for a total of 4.98 MW-AC.Sol Systems developed, built and financed the project, which is now owned by IGS, which in turn sells the electricity generated to Amazon for a combination of on-site usage and net metering, and began producing electricity earlier this month.Amazon was the largest corporate buyer of renewable energy in the United States in 2016, but most of this was wind. In April the company filed an legal brief supporting the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s continued implementation of the Clean Power Plan, which the Trump Administration has moved to either abandon or make meaningless.Amazon puts online New Jersey’s largest rooftop solar installation
