Lt. Governor Kim Guadagno Kicks Off New Jersey’s Fastest Growing Businesses Tour With Visit to Edison's SunDurance Energy

Trenton, NJ – Recognizing the central role being played by New Jersey’s most innovative businesses in creating jobs and fueling the New Jersey Comeback, Lt. Governor Kim Guadagno today kicked off a month-long tour of the fastest growing businesses across the state. The first visit was to SunDurance Energy, an Edison-based solar energy company that develops, designs, builds and operates solar power solutions for the commercial, government, and utility-scale markets.

“The New Jersey Comeback is fueled by our efforts to improve our business climate and earn the confidence of companies to stay and expand in our state and grow jobs for residents,“ said Lt. Governor Guadagno. “As one of the Garden State’s fastest growing businesses, SunDurance illustrates the fact that New Jersey has what it takes for businesses to grow and be successful.”

SunDurance Energy is ranked #38 on Inc. Magazine’s list of America’s 500 fastest- growing private companies and #3 in the Energy Sector. SunDurance Energy is the recipient of the Interstate Renewable Energy Council’s 2009 Innovation Award and The Utility & Transportation Contractors Association’s 2010 Award.

SunDurance Energy, LLC is a separate affiliate of The Conti Group, a nationwide leader in infrastructure development, engineering and construction, power, water, environmental remediation, homeland security and renewable energy. SunDurance provides up-front investment and procurement of solar technology, including application and design, engineering, construction, permitting, service, monitoring, and managing green credits for each project.

“A leading national solar provider, SunDurance Energy employs a robust, sustainable and prosperous business model, proving again that business expansion in dynamic, growing industries is happening here in our state. We’re inviting companies from beyond our borders to see for themselves that New Jersey is a great place to call home, and we are helping those here to invest in their future with us,“ continued Lt. Governor Guadagno. “Through the New Jersey Partnership For Action, the Christie Administration is providing business advocacy services and meaningful regulatory and tax policy reforms so that companies – whether a start-up or a multi-national – have access to important resources to help them grow and prosper.”

SunDurance Energy has recently contracted with the United States Marine Corps Logistics Base in California for a project that will supply 25 percent of the base power. It has ten solar projects located in New Jersey:
