Altus Power Management Begins Construction of Solar Project at Sika Corporation U.S.

Mar 13, 2012 | News

(Greenwich, CT) – Altus Power Management announced the initial construction phase of a solar installation at Sika Corporation’s site in Lyndhurst, NJ. Sika signed a long-term solar Power Purchase Agreement (PPA) with Altus Power earlier this year. The 25-year PPA will help Sika offset a large portion of its electricity usage and achieve significant savings on its electricity bills.
Altus Power will finance, own and operate the New Jersey-based system, taking advantage of the state’s Solar Renewable Energy Certificate (SREC) program which continues to make solar PPAs attractive. The system, which will generate approximately 395,000 kilowatt hours of electricity annually, will be installed by American Solar & Alternative Power (ASAP), one of the region’s most experienced solar integrators.

This deal adds the fourth New Jersey project to Altus Power’s rapidly growing solar portfolio. Tom Athan, Managing Partner of Altus Power Management, said, “I am pleased that Altus is continuing to grow its Northeast portfolio with important counterparties like Sika who have the foresight to plan for a clean-energy future.”
