"New Jersey is a hotbed of solar power. Last year it surpassed 4,000 residential and commercial solar installations, making it second only to California in sheer numbers and first in the country in solar power per square mile. That activity is driven largely by state tax incentives and regulations that benefit companies and institutions that want to go solar, colleges and universities among them."
