Description:
Abstract:
This data within this layer includes the quantity and installed capacity of solar installations in each of New Jersey's counties. The quantity and installed capacity in each county is also broken out by installation type (i.e. residential, non-residential, and gird supply). This data is updated and published monthly by the New Jersey Board of Public Utilities at: https://www.njcleanenergy.com/renewable-energy/project-activity-reports/project-activity-reports
Purpose:
To provide data and information on the current status of installed solar PV quantity and capacity within each of New Jersey's counties.
