The solar facility will generate approximately 3,920,000 kilowatt hours of solar electricity per year and is designed to supply 100% of the electric power needs for the United Stationers' warehouse site.

KDC Solar engaged SunDurance Energy, LLC ("SunDurance"), a nationwide leader in infrastructure development, engineering and construction, power, water, environmental remediation, homeland security and renewable energy to install the solar facility. The project used over 21,000 panels manufactured by Trina Solar

"United Stationers is excited to see this rooftop solar installation come on line. This provides us with a great opportunity to reduce our carbon footprint through the production of clean electricity, increasing our environmental stewardship in the local community and the State of New Jersey," said Bill Stark, United Stationers' VP of Engineering.

"We are thrilled to complete the project for United Stationers and The Sudler Companies to provide clean, low cost, long-term solar energy that will satisfy 100% of United Stationers' current needs," said Hal Kamine, KDC Solar's CEO.  "This solar facility represents our largest completed rooftop mounted project to date.  We intend to replicate this successful model as we pursue our commitment to "behind-the-meter" solar electric systems for business/government and institutions in New Jersey, which in turn creates or preserves long-term jobs for New Jersey."

"With the inclusion of this rooftop solar facility, from an electrical consumption perspective this building has no measurable adverse impact on our environment – From an energy conservation perspective, I can't think of a greater endeavor - a tremendous social benefit, responsible building practice and it's just plain good business," said Peter D. Sudler, President/CEO.  "We were pleased to work with KDC Solar and United Stationers to bring this solar project to fruition and we are proud that 100 Liberty Way plays a small part in lessening our Country's reliance on foreign oil."
