Lincoln Renewable Energy (LRE) recently held the official dedication ceremony for its 12.5-megawatt (MW) NJ Oak Solar power project. The solar power project, located in Cumberland County, N.J., includes approximately 53,000 solar panels and sits on a 100-acre site. “It is the largest non-utility-owned solar project east of the Mississippi,” the company states.
