The Mountain Creek Resort and Grand Cascades Golf Resort in Vernon, New Jersey are going solar. SPI Solar will develop the solar project with EPC KDC Solar. KDC Solar will own and operate the systems, which will include a mixture of fixed ground mount and custom designed solar parking canopies and car ports at three separate sites at the resort. The photovoltaic systems will provide more than 8,000,000 kW hours of solar electricity generation per year to help power the resort’s operations.
“This will be our first installation at a major year-round resort,” said Stephen Kircher, CEO for SPI Solar. “We are extremely pleased that it will be Mountain Creek and Crystal Springs and that our finished work will be seen by the thousands of visitors the resorts draw from the tri-state area. We look forward to getting started.”
“We are very happy to have the opportunity to provide the Mountain Creek and Crystal Springs Resorts with clean, low cost, long-term solar energy,” said Hal Kamine, KDC Solar’s CEO. “These installations are an example of the resort’s commitment to the environment, and a complement to KDC Solar’s commitment to “behind-the-meter” solar electric systems for businesses and jobs in New Jersey.”
The project is scheduled for completion by the end of this year.
