The only active landfill in Vermont, located in Coventry, Vt., is going solar—in stride with the rising trend of landfill solar development across the United States.
The 2.7-megawatt (MW) system, which was designed and is currently being built by Borrego Solar and financed by a joint venture between Greenwood Energy and Soltage called Soltage Greenwood, will be installed on the landfill site’s buffer zone, alongside an existing 8 MW gas-to-energy generating facility that utilizes the methane captured from both the active and capped sections of the landfill. . . .
