Duke Realty Will Host Rooftop Solar Projects in NJ

Logistics REIT Duke Realty said it would host solar projects covering nearly one million square feet of roof space across four of its New Jersey industrial sites through a partnership with Solar Landscape. Duke, which operates nearly eight million square feet of logistics space in New Jersey, didn’t specify which of its projects were included in the program.

The New Jersey Board of Public Utilities selected the four projects, totaling 11.07 megawatts (MW), as the first of 77.61 MW of solar power awarded in year one of its three-year Community Solar Energy Pilot Program. When completed, the combined projects will deliver more than 250 million kilowatt hours of renewable electricity over the next 20 years.

Citing the “massive, often unencumbered” rooftops of logistics facilities, Solar Landscape’s Shaun Keegan said, “These large-scale projects mean that energy can be generated remotely, and used by residents all across New Jersey.”
