Lincoln Renewable Energy begins solar power project

Lincoln Renewable Energy (LRE) has commenced construction of its 10MW New Jersey Oak Solar project, which, located in Fairfield Township in Cumberland County, will comprise 55,000 solar panels constructed on a 100-acre site connected to Atlantic City Electric’s distribution system.

LRE claims that, when completed later this year, the New Jersey Oak Solar project will be the largest non-utility-owned solar project east of the Mississippi, and one of the largest solar facilities in the US.
