Located between the busy Port of Elizabeth and the Newark Airport, the facility is a high-profile, Class A new industrial distribution center.  Renewvia Energy structured a program for IDI that allows multiple building tenants to take advantage of a 1.25MW rooftop mounted PV system.Utilizing 5304 ART-245 solar panels from Suniva, GT500 inverters from Schneider/Xantrex and mounted at a 5-degree tilt on non-penetrating racking from Sunlink, Renewvia Energy is providing over 1400 MWh of electricity to the building each year.  Protecting the integrity of the roof and tenants’ operations was the most important aspect of developing this project.The project takes advantage of the New Jersey SREC (Solar Renewable Energy Certificate) program and the PSE&G Solar Loan program to bring these benefits of solar energy to IDI and its tenants.  Renewvia Energy owns and operates the power plant and sells power through the use of PPAs (Power Purchase Agreements).This project is unique because of the involvement of 3 Georgia companies. Renewvia Energy, IDI and Suniva are all Atlanta, GA based companies.
