The Elizabeth Mine Solar Project on the Superfund site in Strafford and Thetford, Vermont, selected Solar FlexRack’s FlexRack Series B3P-X fixed tilt system to support the 7-MWdc PV plant. The project is being developed by Greenwood Energy, Brightfields Development and Wolfe Energy and installed by Conti Solar (the turnkey EPC contractor). This is the finishing touch on a major remediation project (that is nominated for a Project of the Year) that transformed unused landfill to a renewable energy generation site delivering enough electricity to power 1,200 homes.
“We are honored to have been selected for a Superfund Project that has restored a healthy balance to an environmentally challenged site and transformed it to a productive renewable energy power plant,” said Steve Daniel, EVP, Solar FlexRack. “Congratulations to Greenwood Energy and to all who worked on the successful Elizabeth Mine Superfund Project.”
Work on the Elizabeth Mine Solar Project included the upgrade of the regional substation and power lines to the town of Strafford resulting in an improved electrical system that upgraded the reliability of the entire system benefitting the residents of the community. The Superfund project transformed the region to a healthier environment and turned unused landfill into a sustainable solar power generation plant.
