Brightfields recognizes the significant value in siting solar farms at mines. For mines that are currently in operation, especially those in more isolated locations, solar provides energy security, both in terms of grid reliability and favorable energy pricing. For mines that are in the process of closure, solar provides a sustainable reuse of otherwise desolate land. Solar can often help companies meet their goals for sustainable closure cost effectively and can extend the useful and profitable life of the mine, beyond mining operations.

Brightfields is working to develop solar on multiple mines across the United States in different stages of closure. In Illinois, Brightfields and its sister company, Renova, worked on the closure and remediation of a bauxite mine waste site. In Vermont, Brightfields is working on developing a 7 MW DC array on a former copper mine and Superfund site. In Arizona, we are working on developing a 10 MW DC solar array at an open pit copper mine that is currently operating but moving towards closure. Brightfields sees great value in repurposing mine land for renewable energy generation, bringing life to the mine beyond mineral extraction operations. Please contact us to see what could be in store for your mine's future.
