Livingston Solar Array:
Watch video. Currently running at 95% efficiency on a good day, the 7 acre 1.4 MW solar array is located on Livingston Campus. It is the largest solar energy project in the State (largest single-campus solar array in the nation) and will generate more than 1500 megawatt hours of electricity in the first year which is about 11% of the electrical demand on Livingston Campus. Almost 8000 solar panels about four-feet high will reduce the university's carbon dioxide emissions by more than 1216 tons per year (saving more than 2900 barrels of oil or 660 tons of coal or removing 155 vehicles from the road) and will offset the need to purchase power from PSE&G or draw on the capacity of the university's gas and oil-fired cogeneration plant.
