The Ryan Co., a contracting subsidiary of Quanta Services Inc., Houston, will install 55,000 solar panels for a 10MW project in New Jersey that will connect to Atlantic City Electric’s grid and power 2,000 homes. The New Jersey Oak Solar project is being developed by Lincoln Renewable Energy (LRE), Chicago. A LRE press release said when completed later this year, the New Jersey Oak Solar project will be the largest non-utility owned solar project east of the Mississippi.
Quanta Renewable Energy Services and The Ryan Co. will provide comprehensive engineering, procurement and construction services. Following project completion, Quanta will operate and maintain the facility under contract with LRE. Construction is projected to begin in June with an estimated project completion date of December.
