Spano Partners has developed many projects throughout the Northeast United States. The firm’s first self-developed project was an $18-million, 3.6 MW solar energy installation in Manalapan, New Jersey. Built on a previously underutilized parcel of land, this project currently generates power sold into the regional electrical grid, and will ultimately supply power to a 700,000 square feet of mixed-use development scheduled to begin construction in 2020. Up the road from the Manalapan project is the Millhurst solar facility, a 1.7 MW single phase utility-scale solar facility, which also provides reliable power to support nearby communities.
Among self-developed assets is another $50 million, 12.4 MW two-phase utility scale project, one of the largest ground-mounted, grid-interconnected systems in New Jersey. The power it generates is sold into the regional electrical grid, contributing to national and state goals of producing clean, efficient, renewable energy.
Spano Solar Enterprises also develops large scale commercial distributed generation rooftop projects through its Solar Solutions Program, including the 2 MW system currently powering the Pep Boys regional distribution center in Chester, New York. SSE also assists other developers in getting their projects to the finish line as a co-developer utilizing its reputation, experience, and extensive industry network.
Managing Director James Spano recently created the Gateway Solar Alliance℠ to provide a one stop, one contact, finance solution for rooftop replacements and solar installations, providing members of New Jersey’s Gateway Chamber of Commerce with the best solar financing program in the market. The Alliance consists of Spano Partners Holdings as developer, Advanced Solar Products as EPC contractors, and True Green Capital as financier.
Together this highly experienced team has cumulatively developed, contracted and installed over 500 MW of solar generation facilities over the last 20 years.
