3,800 kW PPL Renewable Energy Park Opens
The 3,800 kilowatt PPL Renewable Energy Park located in Camden County, New Jersey was dedicated recently. It is composed of three power generating plants and was built by PPL Energy Services.
The Energy Park features multiple technologies, including solar and landfill gas-to-energy power generation, according to a Kyocera announcement. Two of the newly constructed power generating plants will generate energy for Aluminum Shapes, a Pennsauken New Jersey aluminum fabricator. A 2,800 kW landill gas-to-energy power generator located at the Pennsauken Sanitary Landfill and a 500 kW solar energy system located on site at Aluminum Shapes provide power to the Pennsauken fabricator. The 500 kW solar energy system is made up of 2,674 Kyocera KC187 modules with an estimated annual production of 600,000 kilowatt hours.
The third power generating plant is a 500 kW solar energy system also located at the Pennsauken Sanitary Landfill, will provide power to run the 2,800 kW landfill gas-to-energy power generator at the landfill, which in turn provides energy back to the Aluminum Shapes facility. A total of 2,500 Kyocera KC200 modules were used to create the 500 kW solar energy system with an estimated annual energy production of 600,000 kWh.
