Press release from: Masonic Home of New Jersey

The Masonic Home of New Jersey, a leading senior care home providing assisted living, residential living, Alzheimer’s care, adult respite care, short term rehab, hospice care and more, is demonstrating environmental awareness with the installation of 5,600 ground-supported solar panels at its Burlington facility.

Upon completion, the panels will span more than seven acres of the Masonic Home property and generate about 1 MW of electricity. The solar power generated by the panels will account for approximately 11% of the facility’s energy.

Taking advantage of the latest technology at the Masonic Home is a top priority. “We strive to keep our facility at the forefront of technology to provide the best possible care professionally, personally and technically,” says David Dorworth of the Masonic Charity Foundation.

According to Dorworth, the panels feature a sleek design and strategically cover a vast area of the property. “The strategy behind the panels’ placement,” he explains, “stems from the focus of the Masonic Home to maintain an aesthetically-pleasing community for our residents and visitors. We believe very strongly in providing our residents with a beautiful, comfortable place to live. The placement of the newly installed panels helps to preserve the property’s natural beauty while helping to ease the Masonic Home’s environmental impact. We are very excited about how the solar panels will help to reduce energy consumption and costs, which will allow us to make greater investments in future improvement projects for the home.”

The Masonic Home of New Jersey is open to the public and provides assisted living, residential living, Alzheimer’s care, adult respite care, short term rehab, hospice care and long term care. Those who are interested in learning more about the facility and its recent environmental efforts can visit the Masonic Home of New Jersey’s newly designed website at
