“This will be a great money-saver for Boscov’s at Cumberland Mall,” said A.J. Danza, CEO of The Danza Group. “Boscov’s is thinking forward, and this installation is a testament to the management of the company.”
Construction on the array began in May, Danza said, by IPP Solar of New York. The project is slated to finish in mid-July.
“In all,” Danza said, “the solar array will cover about 100,000 square feet on the roof of the Boscov’s building.” Danza said the system weighs about six pounds per square foot, and that the entire array weighs about 600,000 pounds.
But there’s a lot of energy packed into that square footage, said Paul Jeun, co-founder of IPP solar. “The average home uses about 5 kilowatts of energy per year,” he said. “This array is rated at more than 900 kilowatts – or enough to power about 190 homes for a year.”
Robert Roman, mayor of Vineland, said that his city is leading the way with solar projects in the state. “We’re the only municipality in New Jersey that generates electricity,”
Romano said the solar array has had a positive impact on Vineland. “It’s great for the city, and it’s great for Boscov’s,”
