HOLMDEL TOWNSHIP , NJ--(Marketwired - May 22, 2013) - OCI Solar Power has commenced commercial operations at its new solar farm in Holmdel Township, New Jersey -- its second solar power plant in New Jersey.
The solar facility was developed on 34 acres on Holmdel Road in Monmouth County and is now operational, generating power from the sun using more than 13,000 solar modules on-site.
The project, constructed with leading solar PV technology, is 3 megawatts (AC) in size and can power more than 2,000 homes during daylight hours.
"The completion of the Holmdel solar facility is another big step toward creating a more sustainable and green future for New Jersey and the Holmdel community," said Tony Dorazio, the President of OCI Solar Power.
"It's the second of two projects for OCI Solar in New Jersey, and we are grateful for the community's partnership and support," Dorazio added.
OCI Solar Power plans to sell the electricity it produces to regional power distributor PJM for providing power to area homes and businesses. According to the company, the additional sustainable energy source will mean increased efficiencies and renewable energy costs for the area.
OCI Solar Power is also currently developing a 400 MW solar power project-one of the nation's largest-in San Antonio, Texas and another 100 MW nationwide.

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M., May 23, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Affordable Solar announced that its retail business is offering a solar panel leasing program to residential customers in New Mexico. For less than the monthly cost of their electric bills, many New Mexicans can now use renewable solar energy to help power their homes.
Affordable Solar's new solar financing program, in cooperation with Sunnova Energy Corp., will provide New Mexico homeowners with solar power systems that can allow them to save money on energy costs from day one without paying the upfront cost of the system. The leasing program allows customers to select the solar panels and system sizes that best meet their energy needs and budgets.
The program includes a solar lease option that includes installation, monitoring, repairs and insurance for a low monthly fee. As an example, a 4.5-kilowatt residential solar system, which is typical for a 3 bedroom home, would initially cost approximately $79 a month, with no upfront cost. The $79 per month will be offset by a decrease in their electric bill. Customers could purchase the same system outright for $18,000, not including federal and state tax credits.
The new solar lease program is only available to New Mexico property owners through Affordable Solar. Currently, 75% of Americans have access to solar energy through a solar lease. Now New Mexicans can lock in their cost of electricity, paying for tomorrow's electricity at yesterday's prices.
"Affordable Solar is proud to have an innovative partner in Sunnova Energy Corp. This partnership will help bring energy independence to many New Mexicans that have been turned off by the upfront cost of solar, or their lack of tax incentives. New Mexicans will be able to lock in their energy costs for 25 years, providing stability that a family can plan around. Think of it like having been able to lock in your gas prices many years ago at 99¢ per gallon for 25 years. The upside is tremendous," said Ryan Centerwall , general manager Affordable Solar.
"Sunnova is pleased to partner with Affordable Solar and to be the first to offer solar leasing in the New Mexico Market. New Mexicans will now have access to cheaper electricity through a solar lease for ZERO out of pocket expense. A Sunnova Lease allows you to lock in your electricity rate for the next 25 years, while utility rates continue to rise. Customers have peace of mind that comes with a 25 year warranty, system monitoring, maintenance, and our Power Production Guarantee," said Robyn Kenkel , account manager Sunnova.
Affordable Solar provides solar project design, project development, construction and product distribution. Since 1998, Affordable Solar has supplied over 15,000 PV systems to commercial, industrial, scientific community and residential customers in 96 countries.
