Engineering Expert Testifies On NJ Solar Farm

Electric powerlinesAn agricultural expert, environmental consultant and technical engineering expert witness testified on behalf of Lincoln Renewable Energy (LRE), at the Mannington, NJ, planning board meeting, hoping to gain site plan and use variance approval for their proposed 129-acre solar farm.  LRE proposed using panels of 270 watts each that will stand eight to 12 feet tall. The solar farm grid is proposed to hold about 46,000 panels. Panels will be wired-up like Christmas lights with 12 panels per string. At the end of each row, strings will connect to a box, similar to a circuit breaker, and an inverter.

“This whole process is done through testimony,” said Planning Board Secretary Rebecca Gower-Call. “In general planning board procedure, once a resolution is voted on and signed, planning board’s involvement would end, unless an applicant needs to come back for final site plan approval.”
