Solar Power on Landfills: Case Studies and Lessons Learned-Webinar

Solar Power on Landfills: Case Studies and Lessons Learned

Webinar: Thursday, Mar. 10, 2016, 10:30 AM – 12:00 PM

Closed landfills are often attractive locations for municipal solar projects because of the limited number of alternative uses for these sites. This Climate Smart Communities webinar will provide an overview of the special considerations involved when installing solar power on landfills. Speakers will describe the resources available to support these projects from the US EPANYSERDA, and DEC. Webinar participants will also learn about case studies from the growing number municipalities in New York State who have successfully installed solar power on their landfills and are thereby reducing their carbon footprint.

Our speakers will include Maureen Leddy of NYSERDA’s NY-Sun program and Clarkstown Supervisor George Hoehmann who was an integral part of the team that installed a 13-acre, 2.3MW solar field on the Town’s landfill.
