EPA Whitepaper on Solar Landfill Development

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) recognizes the overall environmental benefit of siting renewable energy projects on contaminated properties. Through the RE-Powering America’s Land Initiative, EPA is encouraging renewable energy development on current and formerly contaminated lands, landfills, and mine sites when such development is aligned with the community’s vision for the site.

“One of the unique aspects of the project's design is the GameChange racking system, with no posts driven into the ground. The GameChange system features a Pour-in-Place™ Ballasted racking system, with a non-penetrating concrete ballast block design. That is one of the reasons that we liked the GameChange system because it is a Pour-in-Place ballasted system. It's self-leveling, which was a nice feature. We are able to get the solar modules all in a straight line, even if the ground beneath isn't.”

Emma Kosciak
Manager of Solar Development for Citizens Energy Corporation

“Working on a landfill requires that you pay careful attention to any equipment that will contact the existing ground surface, so that the environmental integrity of the site can be maintained. Working with GameChange Solar allowed us to design this installation cost effectively to ensure that our project resulted in an overall environmental gain in the town of Patterson.”

Paul Curran
Managing Director, BQ energy

“As a leading Distributed Energy Resources and technology company, Tangent values reliability and innovation. GameChange’s constant improvement in their trackers and racking embodies the combination of practicality and innovation we strive to provide our C&I customers”

Andy Meserve
VP of Business Development, Tangent Energy Solutions

“Fastest ballasted ground system I've installed: We just drop the racks into forms and then pour the concrete, very few parts, very simple to deploy. ”
