As New Jersey and other states move to cut their reliance on traditional energy sources, companies that build and operate renewable power facilities — mainly wind and solar — are becoming more important economic actors. Asbury Park-based Solar Landscape already ranks among the leaders. Founded in 2012 by lifelong friends Shaun Keegan and Corey Gross, the company is one of the largest solar energy companies not only here but in the country. For this edition of NJBIZ Conversations, Editor Jeff Kanige spoke with Keegan about Solar Landscape’s origins, growth and the “game-changer” that is the community solar program. “Instead of buying your electricity from PSE&G or JCP&L, your local utility, you can sign up with the community solar garden and you’ll save some money,” he said. “And more importantly, you’ll help save the environment because you’ll know that your energy is coming from a clean, renewable power source from solar rather than from fossil fuels.” Watch the full interview here.
