Redeveloping Brownfields with Solar: Challenges and Opportunities
Many companies are finding ways to deploy solar energy on abandoned mine lands, former industrial sites, and other brownfields as utility-scale solar – the third largest source of renewable energy – continues to grow rapidly.
Known as “brightfields,” deploying solar energy on a brownfield enables a responsible form of industrial redevelopment and clean energy generation. A solar energy facility improves upon a site that would otherwise sit vacant.
