The Only Active Landfill In Vermont Goes Solar

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. . . .
