Constellation to install nation's largest solar roof project

May 11, 2011

Baltimore's Constellation Energy Group, which agreed last month to sell itself to Exelon Corp., announced Wednesday that it will build the largest solar roof installation in the United States at a Toys "R" Us distribution center in New Jersey.

The 5.38-megawatt solar rooftop project will be the largest at a single building, according to the Solar Energy Industry Association.

Constellation will build and own the solar system, while the toy retailer will purchase all of the electricity generated by the solar panels under a 20-year power purchase deal. The system is scheduled to come on line by this summer.

Constellation owns and operates 95 megawatts of solar installations that are complete or under construction.
