New Jersey County Installs 25,000 Solar Panels

New BrunswickA recent New Jersey solar project shows that going green is an affordable option.

Middlesex County added more than 25,000 solar panels to the Apple Orchard Lane complex in New Brunswick.  According to NJ.com, this is enough to power the seven building complex, which includes the county jail, a youth detention center, county archives and more.

These panels will reportedly save the county $1 million a year in energy costs for 15 years. The county will go from paying 13 cents per kilowatt-hour for the seven buildings to 4.5 cents per kilowatt-hour.
