Campbell's to Bring Largest Solar Project in Camden

Last Edited:

On Wednesday, May 17th, the Campbell's Soup Company announced plans to make its world headquarters in Camden green.

The company partnered with BNB Renewable Energy, Sun Power Corporation, and PSE&G to install a new 4.4-megawatt solar array project at its Camden location.

The plan calls to install rooftop and carport solar systems to existing structures, add new parking-lot solar canopies, and create a solar-panel farm in the adjacent empty field.

We've been here 148 years and we want to be here another 148 years at least.

"There's a lot of passion around sustainability," says Dave Stangis, chief sustainability officer at Campbell's Soup Company. "It's all part of our corporate social responsibility strategy, and this is a way to continue that legacy into Camden. We've been here 148 years and we want to be here another 148 years at least, and these are ways to kind of build that connection. And Camden is in a rebirth and we want to be a part of that as well."

When the project is completed in the fall it is expected to generate 20 percent of the campus' annual energy demand and will become the largest solar project in Camden.
