Jones partners to build solar power system
Dow Jones & Company and SunPower Corp.
announced that SunPower has been selected to install a high-efficiency
solar power system totaling 4.1 megawatts at Dow Jones’ corporate
offices in central New Jersey.
The system will include 3.6 megawatts of elevated solar panels
above parking areas and a 522 kilowatt rooftop installation.
When completed early next year, the system will be one of the
nation’s largest solar power installations operating at a corporate
site and is expected to generate the equivalent of 15 percent
of current electricity needs for Dow Jones’ South Brunswick campus.
At the site, SunPower is installing SunPower T5 Solar Roof Tile,
the solar industry’s first non-penetrating rooftop product that
combines a high-efficiency SunPower solar panel, frame and mounting
system into a single pre-engineered unit. Tilted at a five-degree
angle, the T5 Roof Tile system approximately doubles the energy
generated per square meter compared with other systems that are
mounted flat onto commercial rooftops.
