Atlantic Cape salutes its sustaining sponsors
Atlantic Cape Plans Solar Project; Ranked as One of Largest in the State
Atlantic Cape will enter into a 20-year power purchase agreement with Pepco Energy Services, Inc., for a solar photovoltaic power project at the college’s Mays Landing and Cape May County campuses. Pepco Energy will design, own and operate one of the largest land-based solar systems in New Jersey.
The photovoltaic system includes the installation of carports in four parking lots on the Mays Landing and Cape May County campuses. About 80 percent of the carport arrays will be at the Mays Landing Campus. Installation is scheduled to begin in March and be completed by September.

“The solar energy initiative at Atlantic Cape Community College is an excellent example of using innovative strategies to promote energy sustainability as a key step in fulfilling our institutional commitment to environmental stewardship in two counties,” said Dr. Peter L. Mora, Atlantic Cape president. “The solar project will truly establish a green legacy for Atlantic Cape.”
The solar photovoltaic system will generate up to 48 percent of Atlantic Cape’s total annual electric consumption, at a set rate, independent of market rates. By entering into the agreement, Atlantic Cape will realize savings of $220,000 the first year, and up to $6.8 million over the 20-year life of the contract. The electricity generated per year will be equivalent to the amount needed to power approximately 220 homes.
