New Program Brings Solar to New Jersey Rooftops
Cream Ridge, NJ (May 12, 2016) – More than 80 varieties of grapes grow on more than 2,000 vineyard acres across New Jersey. The Garden State Wine Growers Association knows how beneficial the sun is for their prized grapes, and they also recognize how the sun can help the citizens of New Jersey too. Recently the group launched NJ Wine Grows Solar, a new initiative to help spread solar power to homes across the state.
“We are excited about what this can do for New Jersey. With more than 100,000 people visiting our tasting rooms and vineyards annually, we will be able to educate, empower and provide more options for people, and that’s a good thing,” said Tom Cosentino, Executive Director of the Garden State Wine Growers Association.
The agency is working with Direct Energy Solar™. The company will offer a limited time program with a streamlined process and significant financial savings for residents who want to install a solar system on their roof.
“We’ve partnered with communities all across the eastern United States and have seen tremendous support for these programs. People like working with their friends and neighbors to increase awareness of what solar can do and jump start their energy independence.” said Jennifer King, Community Programs Specialist for Direct Energy Solar.
The program will run through December 31, 2016. During this time The Garden State Wine Growers Association and Direct Energy Solar will host several information sessions, community meetings, and other educational opportunities for those who want to learn more about solar energy.
