PSE&G’s Solar 4 All Program Benefits 515 million Solar 4 All investment will: Nearly double the size of New Jersey’s solar capacity Create green jobs for people who are needed toassemble and install the units Result in New Jersey having more installed solarcapacity than any state except California10

What the Solar Units Look Like Solar unitsnits are 5 feetwide by 2.5 feet highand weigh about 60pounds Units are safelyattached to the poleabout 15 – 18 feetfrom the ground11

Location of Solar Unit Installations Solar units will be installedon 200,000 utility poles inPSE&G’s service territory. Includes state’sstate s six largestcities and roughly 300 ruraland suburban communities In residential neighborhoods,as well as on poles andaluminum street lights alongmain streets near areabusinesses.businesses12

Selection of Pole Sites PSE&G selects ppoles that: Can support the solar units Have an unobstructed view of southern skyy Have no more than one transformer alreadyon the polep Poles can have cable, but no junction boxes13

Safety Information Solar panels are safe: Same panels that are mounted on homes, schools and otherbuildings Mounted at or above 15 feet to avoid damage from traffic Tested to withstand 90 mph wind load Durable/shatterproof Low voltage (120 volts) and designed not to provide back feed Additional safety information is available upon requestFor emergencies, call 1-800-436-PSEG (7734)14

Who Is Assembling and Installing the Solar Units? PSE&G will use several contractors toinstall the units on available poles over thecourse of the solar projectThe Solar 4 All program will create greenjobs: About 100 ppeoplep will be needed to install the unitsover the next few yearsAnother 100 will be employed by Petra Solar, aSouth Plainfield company that will assemble theunits for PSE&G right here in New Jersey15
