What is being touted as the largest solar-powered carport in the US has been constructed at an auction facility in Bordentown, NJ. In an area of 13,000 sq. meters, the 1MW structure, built by Alpha Energy, has 5,880 solar panels of 170W capacity and is about the size of three American football fields. It was constructed with 11 inverters so that if one array is damaged, 90% of the total power can still be supplied. The system should generate more than 1,056,000 kilowatt hours per year which is enough to power 114 homes.
