Since its formation in 2008, Brightfields Development has developed solar photovoltaic projects across the nation. Below are select projects from Brightfields' broader development portfolio.

Elizabeth Mine, VT

During mining operations AFTER MINE CLOSURE Finished Mine Site with Solar
 

Brightfields Development is developing a 7 MW-DC solar array at the Elizabeth Mine Superfund Site. The project received a Certificate of Public Good from the VT Public Service Board and completed the interconnection process with Green Mountain Power ("GMP"). Construction will begin in fall 2016 and commercial operations will commence in early 2017. 

The array will be located on a 28-acre site within both the Towns of Strafford and Thetford, VT. The Elizabeth Mine Superfund site is an abandoned copper mine that operated from the early 1800's until 1958. Since 2001, the EPA has implemented a series of remediation measures, including the installation of a large capping remedy in 2011 to cover the contaminated areas of the site. Brightfields developed a site-specific solar array design that protects both the integrity of the cap and the surrounding environment while producing clean energy.

Throughout the development process, Brightfields worked closely with GMP to maximize the array's value to the grid. The Elizabeth Mine solar array will be constructed in collaboration with a 3 phase power line extension and stability upgrade by GMP to their electric distribution system. 

 Elizabeth Mine's production of clean energy will:

  • Offset 6,000 tons of CO2 annually, equal to emissions from the combustion of 14,000 barrels of oil
  • Equals the carbon sequestration from almost 5,000 acres of forest
  • Provides electricity sufficient to power 1,200 homes annually
