Denver-based Conergy and its Philadelphia-based subsidiary, Epuron, have announced the completion and sale of the Exelon-Conergy Solar Energy Center. The 3MW project is located on the Waste Management G.R.O.W.S 16.5-acre landfill site just outside of Philadelphia.
This solar power plant is Pennsylvania’s first utility-scale plant, and the nation's largest solar photovoltaic (PV) generation project east of the Mississippi River. It features 17,000 crystalline panels which convert sunlight into electricity. The estimated annual production is 3,700,000kWh, reducing yearly CO2 emissions by four million pounds, NOx emissions by more than 9,000 pounSds, and SOx emissions by 28,000 pounds.
