ARTICLE / 89.3 KPCCA new approach to energy: Using old landfill sites to generate solar power
Origination & Transfer
PVNavigator, LLC entered into an agreement with ExxonMobil in 2017 to evaluate, from environmental, geotechnical, interconnect and power-sales perspectives, the feasibility of developing a PV solar power project on the landfill site, after cover installation and remediation had been completed. The project was initially sized in the 12MW range. Today, in its latter stages, the project is being developed by Amereso, Inc. where it is scaled at 27MW.
- PVNavigator leverages the landfill expertise of sister company, Project Navigator, Ltd.
- PVNavigator, LLC consults on the development of rack-mounted, photovoltaic solar power installations on closed landfills.
- Expertise and design on the racking of PV projects on engineered landfill caps.
We screen the feasibility of potential PV projects via a combination of technical and economic criteria.
We involve the landfill site owner in the development process.
