Ribbon Cutting

Nexus Properties Inc., 1 Brunswick Circle, Lawrenceville 08648; 609-396-6800; fax, 609-989-8492. Andrea L. Sussman, executive VP. Home page: www.nexusproperties.com.

California-based Premier Power Renewable Energy Inc. formally dedicated the first of two 201 kilowatt solar rooftops at the New Jersey Transit Center in Trenton with a ribbon cutting ceremony on October 14.

The building, a six-story parking garage beside the Amtrak line, is the first of two such structures that ultimately will each house more than 600 solar panels and generate 401 kilowatts of solar power at the station.. The solar systems are operated by Lawrenceville-based real estate developer, Nexus Properties, which has offices at 1 Brunswick Circle.

According to Premier Power, the canopies are expected to jointly generate about 467,500 kilowatt hours per year, which is roughly the amount of energy needed to power 50 homes per year. The systems also are expected to eliminate approximately 141 tons of carbon dioxide emissions annually. The power generated by the solar systems at times, will be more than the structures need, and Nexus Properties will be able to sell excess power back to the grid.

In addition to producing energy, each solar system is being equipped with 110 volt charging stations for hybrid and electric vehicles.
