ENER-G wins energy services contract from NJ college

Saint Peter’s College in New Jersey, US, has appointed ENER-G to deliver an energy services contract for its West Campus in Jersey City.

ENER-G is funding the $6.3m (£4m) capital program, with the cost partially offset by two grants from New Jersey’s clean energy programme and federal tax credits awarded to solar power and combined heat and power (CHP) projects, all of which total $1.86m.

The power company is installing technology designed to reduce the college’s carbon emissions by 2,886 metric tonnes per year, which will equate to the carbon-saving benefits of a 615-acre pine forest.

This is the first of a number of carbon-abatement investment projects in the US for ENER-G.
