Costco Store in New Jersey to Use Solar Power
(Solar News) A Costco store in Hazlet, New Jersey, is about to go green. The store is being retrofitted with new Solyndra solar panels that use cylindrical modules to capture sunlight across a 360-degree photovoltaic surface. This will convert direct, indirect, and reflected sunlight into electricity.
The system is being installed by Solar Power, Inc and is expected to be completed before the end of the year. The system will utilize 3,300 173-watt Solyndra panels and a 500kW Advanced Energy inverter. The installation will be the largest commercial photovoltaic solar system that uses Solyndra panels.
