Rose Garden Nursing Facility will reduce energy costs and provide the facility with lower electric costs.

Today, Sunergy America, a New Jersey solar solutions energy provider, announced the signing of an agreement for the building of a 385 KW solar plant in Toms River, New Jersey. The system will be comprised of a 90KW rooftop system and a 295KW Solaire carport system utilizing CNPV power 240Watt modules, and Solectria Invertors. The innovative system provides for distributed power to Rose Garden Nursing Facility to provide clean reliable cost effective solar electricity and reduced grid dependency. The solar plant is expected to be commissioned in the summer of 2012.

Sunergy America offers a “Turnkey” energy solutions program and will assist Rose Garden with executing an interconnection Agreement with Jersey Central Power & Light for net metering. This is a metering option that:

1) Credits customer-generators at the full retail rate for each kilowatt-hour produced by a Class 1 renewable energy system installed on the customer-generator’s side of the electric revenue meter, up to the total amount of electricity used by that customer during an annualized period; and

2) Compensates the customer-generator at the end of the annualized period for any remaining credits, at a rate equal to the supplier/provider’s avoided cost of wholesale power.

In addition to the solar plant Sunergy America will also install a 75KW Cogeneration system to provide electricity during times when the solar system will fall short of the facility’s energy needs. The Cogeneration system will also provide a back up generator to ensure Rose Garden is never without power. “It is crucial for our facility to maintain reliable, affordable energy at all times in the nursing care environment. Our residents live at this facility and expect to receive the highest living standards.”, said Bob Notte.

In order to cover some of the costs for the new solar and cogeneration power system, Sunergy America assisted Rose Garden to register so they can acquire a US Treasury Section 1603 Federal Grant that covered up to 30% of the system cost and qualify them to earn New Jersey Solar Renewable Energy Certificates (SREC). These SREC Certificates are sold to the electric companies to help them meet New Jersey carbon reduction emissions standards.

Bob Notte, Member of the LLC ownership stated, “Sunergy America helped us realize our plan to reduce energy costs. We are thrilled to go Green and it makes great economic sense. Ultimately Sunergy America will afford us the ability to effectuate the savings on energy costs which can be used for the benefit of the residents. Their team of professionals answered all of our questions and provided us with an excellent alternative energy saving system.”

Bruno J. D’Uva, CEO said, “We are happy to contribute towards job creation and clean reliable energy in New Jersey. We look forward to continuing creating new relationships with clients that are interested in reducing their energy cost and grid dependency.”
