Trinity Solar (Wall, New Jersey, U.S.) has completed a 12.3 MW solar photovoltaic (PV) installation, spread over 650 rooftops on military housing at a U.S. military base in the state of New Jersey.

The PV project at Joint Base McGuire-Dix-Lakehurst is expected to meet over 30% of the community's annual energy needs. Solar crowd funding platform Mosaic (Oakland, California, U.S.) was among the providers of project debt for the installation.

“Completing this project, installing over 10,000 solar modules on over 650 roof-tops and connecting them to compile 12.3 Megawatts of solar in just over eight months has been challenging but incredibly rewarding,” notes Trinity Solar VP of Operations Bill Condit. “Working with so many diverse entities to complete a common monumental goal has been a great experience.”

CIT Bank served as senior lender and also provided project debt, and equity was provided by owner True Green Capital Management LLC. Military housing developer United Communities also provided bonds for the project.

The U.S. military has a goal to deploy 3 GW of renewable energy on military installations and to obtain 25% of its total power requirements from renewable energy sources by 2025.
