Annandale, New Jersey (PRWEB) September 09, 2014
The Village Green at Annandale, New Jersey's first totally solar-powered development, celebrates its official grand opening with a ribbon cutting ceremony on Wednesday, September 10 at 5:00 p.m. The community is located at 47 East Street in Annandale, in Clinton Township in western New Jersey's Hunterdon County. The Village at Annandale offers luxury town homes, apartments, retail and office space, all built utilizing sustainable resources and construction methods. What makes the community truly unique is that all of its electric needs are supplied by a two-acre, 322 kW solar farm. Constructed by Green Power Energy, which was founded by Richard Meurer of Annandale-based Meurer Development, the solar farm is directly adjacent to the village on the former Warren Lumber site.
Located in Historic Annandale, just off exit 18 on I-78 and steps away from the NJ Transit station, the repurposed mixed-use eco-village is proof that renewable energy systems can be integrated into traditional neighborhoods. The multi-family residences – one, two and three-bedroom apartments and two-bedroom town homes – are 52% occupied, attracting young professionals and families seeking a green lifestyle without sacrificing luxury and convenience. Retail and office space is available for lease on the ground floor of the residence buildings. The developer will give away a residential solar package at the event.
