Barnegat Township School District Installs 2.14 MW of Solar Carports

The Barnegat Township School District in New Jersey announces the successful installation of a 2.14 MW solar canopy carport portfolio. Expected to generate more than 2,748 MWh of clean energy per year, this solar canopy carport will help the school district achieve its renewable energy goals.

Solar systems were installed by Greenskies Clean Focus at its six schools, with a total of more than 4,756 solar photovoltaic (PV) panels featured at the following locations: Barnegat High School (323.1 kW), Russel O. Brackman Middle School (711.9 kW), Robert L. Horbelt Intermediate School (336.6 kW), Joseph T. Donahue School (336.6 kW), Cecil S. Collins School (234.9 kW), and Lillian M. Dunfee School (197.1 kW).

“We’re excited to see these solar carports operating and beginning to save our School District money while creating a more sustainable future,” said Steve Brennan, Business Administrator for Barnegat Township Schools, in a statement. “These projects showcase our ongoing commitment to our students and community by prioritizing renewable energy and long-term cost savings.”

The solar canopy structures will also provide shade and protection from rain, sleet, and snow at the schools.
