Project details

  • Project Name: Bridgeton Solar Facility
  • Project Client: Eolian Renewable Energy LLC
  • Project Location: Cumberland County, New Jersey

The project sponsor proposed the construction of a 483-solar panel rack photovoltaic solar array on two properties located in Cumberland County, New Jersey. The project area for the proposed photovoltaic array includes an agricultural field, a mid-to-late nineteenth- and early twentieth-century farmstead, two wooded tracks, and a fallow field. The proposed Area of Potential Effects (APE) encompasses approximately 28.75 acres. A.D. Marble conducted background research and the excavation of 356 shovel test pits.  Historic artifacts were recovered, but did not warrant additional investigations. A Phase I Archaeological Investigation report was prepared and NJ HPO concurred with the survey recommendations.
