We provide lease payments for roof space to commercial and industrial real estate owners with no impact on the property’s tenant. The renewable energy we generate on those roofs is fed directly into the grid to be used by New Jersey residents. We also build solar projects that provide discounted electricity to a property tenant that can also involve a lease payment paid to the property owner.
We have more than 50% market share of New Jersey rooftop community solar, where we pay lease payments to property owners. We employ our own in-house team of electricians and installation professionals to ensure we take excellent care of your roof. Solar Landscape is a vertically integrated company that designs, builds, operates and maintains projects — ensuring you deal with one company from project concept to completion.
ON THE HORIZON
Solar Landscape and its CRE partners have installed more than 20 million square feet of industrial community solar projects since 2019. New Jersey Governor Phil Murphy is firmly behind the Community Solar Energy Program, and we believe the program will continue to expand rapidly. The program provides additional ongoing revenue for CRE owners in the form of lease payments for their roof space. It also helps them demonstrate their commitment to environmental, social and governance (ESG) goals. The program lowers utility costs for New Jersey residents and reduces greenhouse gas emissions.
Solar Landscape and the former Duke Realty worked together to install nearly 11 MW DC of solar energy on four Duke properties. In January 2021, Governor Murphy cut the ribbon on two of the projects — located in Perth Amboy — the first New Jersey community solar projects ever energized. Duke Realty featured these projects on the cover of their annual ESG report, and they were also highlighted in stories in the New York Times, ROI-NJ and Real Estate NJ. These arrays, which are now powering 1,800 New Jersey households, provide environmental justice to underserved communities and solar access for all.
Solar Landscape’s community solar offerings allow CRE owners to monetize their rooftop, adding revenue to their bottom lines at no cost whatsoever and without any effect on their tenants. Though community solar, in addition to the revenue they receive, landlords are demonstrating their commitment to reducing their carbon footprint and to their ESG goals. All of this is accomplished at no cost to the CRE owners.
