Brightfields to Present at Michigan Conference

 The Michigan Association of Planning

Join Brightfields in Michigan for the Planning Association's annual conference. We will be participating in a panel that discusses how to leverage dormant brownfields for solar power development. The session will provide attendees with a broad overview of the benefits, challenges, and current state of developing renewable energy sources on brownfields; including a concise inventory of available resources. Lessons learned from the recent experience of one community pursuing such a strategy will be provided.

Scituate Landfill Solar Project Expected Completion by Year-end

The Boston Globe

The 2.4 MW solar array system is still on track to be operating in December despite an extension of the penalty date.

Capped Landfills Add New Shine

The Boston Globe

If you call your local landfill "Mount Trashmore," as they do in some Massachusetts communities, that place everyone loves to hate may soon need a kinder nickname.

Several communities south of Boston have joined a growing trend to turn capped landfills from generators of environmental guilt to generators of green power by installing solar panels. A single landfill can generate millions of watts of power each year and save cities and towns hundreds of thousands on their power bills.

From Brownfield to Solar Farm in East St. Louis

Roosevelt University

Coal has long powered this region, with benefits including cheap energy and costs including soot, local air pollution, contributions to global climate change and cardiovascular and respiratory disease. In Chicago, communities near the Fisk and Crawford coal-fired power plants (which will close by the end of 2014) have suffered from the effects of burning coal. Down in East St. Louis, coal has also been dominant, but a move is afoot to transform an old Alcoa site into one of the Midwest's largest solar projects.

Brightfields to Sponsor RTM Communications Conference

RTM Communications

Join Brightfields at RTM’s Sustainable Property Transactions Conference in Boston. Brightfields is a sponsor of the event and both Managing Principals, Pete Pedersen and John Hanselman, will be featured on a panel discussing the business tactics for managing environmentally distressed property. The presentation will focus on the legal, environmental and transactional issues associated with the acquisition and divestiture of contaminated corporate land. Brightfields will offer critical insight to the process of pairing these divestitures with new reuse options including solar power projects.
