According to the Jersey Daily, PSE&G officials said the company would install about 5,000 to 7,000 solar panels on public poles around Hudson County as part of its solar 4 project.
Local solar panels are part of the state plan to install more than 200,000 solar panels in more than 250 cities in New Jersey.
"Solar panels are directly connected to the grid," explains Fran Sullivan, a spokesman for PSE&G.
"It can't power the lamp.
It benefits all power users.
"When the installation is completed next year, all the solar panels in the state will generate 80 megawatts of electricity, enough for 12,000 households to use in one year.
