NEW JERSEY AMERICAN WATER – MANSFIELD

Solar Consulting and Development

For NJAW’s Mansfield Water Treatment Plant, an 890 kW solar PV system was selected to provide over 50% of the electric usage at the plant. This could be done economically by locating the PV arrays adjacent to the existing operations at the plant. Eneractive proceeded with the design development of this facility and is currently moving forward with construction.

Eneractive’s concept design and project represent a great opportunity for New Jersey American Water to utilize the landmass they currently own to produce power to assist in the power requirements necessary for water distribution. Eneractive also facilitated the necessary requirements for NJAW to participate and obtain benefits from the New Jersey Environmental Infrastructure Trust. Upon project completion, the project will have an approximate 5.5 year simple payback.
