Massachusetts is a Leader in Landfill Solar Development



In the Spring of 2017, Brightfields Development LLC, located in Wellesley, MA, completed a 2.25 MW solar project on a shuttered municipal solid waste landfill in Lexington, MA. This innovative project, which combines a ballasted ground-mount array with two high clearance solar canopy structures, is a leading example of repurposing an environmentally sensitive site into a clean energy asset. As a result of progressive state solar and environmental policies, towns across the Commonwealth have been able to realize significant financial value by developing solar on their landfills. Projects such as Brightfields’ Lexington solar array have made Massachusetts a leading state for solar development on brownfields, and specifically landfills.

“The Lexington solar project was the result of extensive collaboration among a number of development partners to build and operate a solar array in the middle of an active composting operation.” states Kim Martin, Principal and Chief Financial Officer at Brightfields. “We are proud of the role that our team played in conceptualizing and executing this complex development project, while minimizing the project’s impacts on the town’s daily operations. Projects like the Lexington solar array have propelled Massachusetts to the forefront of landfill solar development.”
