Tomorrow, on the campus of Janssen, Division of Ortho-McNeil-Janssen Pharmaceuticals, Johnson & Johnson will flip the switch on the largest solar panel array in New Jersey – as well as the largest solar installation of any site among the Johnson & Johnson family of companies.
The 4.1 megawatt solar photovoltaic array of 13,496 ground-mounted panels tracks the sun from east to west, and is estimated to generate enough energy to provide 70 percent of the site’s annual electricity needs, or roughly the amount needed to power 600 homes annually.
The Titusville site, which hosts multiple Johnson & Johnson companies, broke ground on the array in April.
In addition to the Titusville site, Johnson & Johnson has solar power systems planned or completed at 20 sites worldwide, which together represent an installed capacity of about 13 megawatts.
The EPA’s Green Power Partnership lists the company as the nation’s sixth-largest purchaser of renewable energy.
Here’s a look at the company’s most recent sustainability report.
