Atlantic Green Power provides several important benefits to your community, including:
Benefits from a Community Friendly Approach
Atlantic Green Power and its founder, Ed Stella, your neighbor for the last 25 years, will continue to work closely with the local community to meet their specific needs. We maintain open communication and remain available to help our neighbors understand the benefits of solar energy in our town.
Atlantic Green Power plans to develop up to an 80 MW solar project on their 500 acre farmland tract in Upper Pittsgrove Township, New Jersey. The project is located on the PJM electrical grid, the largest regional electric transmission operator in the world.
Preserve local land while creating a new energy source
Solar farms enable the soil to replenish without the use of fertilizers or pesticides allowing organic matters in the soil to increase naturally.
Generate power without water or air pollution
Solar farms generate clean renewable energy without the environmental or health risks of fossil fueled power plants. This means “power without pollution.”
Helping our country gain energy independence
Every megawatt of energy that Upper Pittsgrove Township can produce by harvesting the sun’s energy, reduces our country’s dependence on fossil fuel imports and conserves natural resources.
Helping to Foster Stewardship in the Local Community, the State and the Federal Government
Atlantic Green Power will positively contribute to the policies set for energy independence, energy security, green house gas reduction and the beneficial use of land.
Help Create Jobs
Atlantic Green Power will look to hire local residents for the construction and operation of its solar farm, creating new jobs and contributing to the local economy.
