Solar: Trenton, NJ 08608

Compare Electricity has developed a solar score for New Jersey to help residents and businesses determine if a solar installation is a viable and cost-effective solution. The solar score is based on a combination of many different factors. Trenton received a score of 27 which is slightly lower than the state average of 30. An estimated 45% of Trenton rooftops are large enough to fit a solar installation and are unobstructed from direct sunlight. With the number of buildings in Trenton, more rooftops are obstructed from the sun at a certain time of day. Also, Trenton receives 4-4.5 kWh of direct sunlight per square mile per day which is slightly lower than the national average.
