ELIZABETH — Geoscape Solar recently completed the installation of a 733Kw solar power system for Atlantic Central Logistics (ACL) in Elizabeth. The system consisted of 4,072 solar panels and nearly 10 miles of wiring. ACL expects to cover 75 percent of their electric needs by switching to clean, renewable solar power. The project created 35 green jobs in Elizabeth and will reduce carbon dioxide that is equivalent to planting nearly 65,000 trees over a 30-year system life, according to Geoscape Solar.

This solar project showed customers, employees, and the community that ACL was concerned about the environment. But, ultimately, ACL needed to make it work financially. CEO Robert Humes, noted, “Anyone can see that solar makes sense for business, but what Geoscape Solar brought to the table was the financial package and sophistication to get the job done.” Geoscape Solar was able to deliver a creative financing solution, replaced their roof, and utilized a Geoscape Solar employee staffed installation crew (not outsourced) to deliver this project, according to company officials.

Elizabeth has shown its commitment to green business. Popular Science magazine recently named it as one of the top 50 greenest cities. Mayor J. Christian Bollwage believes that, “green energy and green jobs are the future.”

Geoscape Solar is a rapidly growing New Jersey based solar power integrator offering sales, installation, design, monitoring, and financing. Launched in 2008, Geoscape Solar specializes in projects in the residential, commercial, and non-profit segments.
