According to the U.S. Conference of Mayors, more than 100 cities nationwide have estimated that they each would receive additional annual tax revenues in the range of $205 million to $500 million by returning brownfields to productive economic use.
What Brightfields Offers
A tremendous opportunity exists nationwide to leverage unused property for passive solar installations. At Brightfields, we offer municipalities the ability to unlock the hidden economic potential of landfills and brownfield sites by giving dormant land a new purpose.
By siting a solar facility on your municipal landfill or brownfield, you can lessen your dependence on traditional power supplied by the grid while demonstrating a deep understanding of local health concerns and creating a significant cost savings. These are all goals communities can appreciate, and Brightfields can help make them a reality.
Over the past 25 years, the individuals at Brightfields have built a reputation on successfully completing large remediation projects and building and maintaining landfills. Our team understands the regulatory hurdles inherent in building power generating assets in environmentally restricted locations. We demonstrate the highest level of commitment to state and federal agencies, city managers, town councils and community groups at every step of the process. Engaging Brightfields Development for your site's solar brownfield project is a major step towards a new energy future.
