Johnson & Johnson Medical's New 4MW Solar Farm


by Energy Matters

Johnson & Johnson Medical Solar Farm
After having commissioned one of the largest rooftop solar arrays in Australia, Johnson & Johnson Medical has unveiled the largest solar panel array in U.S. state of  New Jersey.
The 4.1 megawatt (MW) solar farm at the company's Titusville site consists of nearly 14,500 ground-mounted solar panels and utilises a solar tracking system. The array will deliver enough clean electricity to provide an estimated 70 percent of the site's annual electricity needs, or around the equivalent of enough to power 600 homes annually. 
The Titusville campus is one of several of the company's sites certified as Leadership in Energy & Environmental Design (LEED), a green certification system aimed at improving performance across multiple areas including energy efficiency, water efficiency, greenhouse gas emissions reduction, improved indoor environmental quality, stewardship of resources and minimising environmental impact.
The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Green Power Partnership states Johnson & Johnson Medical is the USA's sixth-largest purchaser of renewable energy and has won six Green Power Leadership Awards from the EPA and Department of Energy since 2002.
Part of Johnson & Johnson’s sustainability program, Project Leaf, the company  has solar power systems planned or completed at 20 sites worldwide, adding up to an installed capacity of about 13 megawatts.
Johnson & Johnson Medical's Australian 200kW project was installed by Energy Matters. Installed at the company's North Ryde facility in Sydney’s north west, it is the largest privately funded solar power plant and the 7th largest solar panel installation in the country.
