Details from the conference website

With solar power now in the mainstream of energy resource development, the aggressive search for suitable greenfield sites has prompted savvy investors, project developers, suppliers, and power organizations to consider sites with less conventional development characteristics.

Ironically, these blemished sites areas often turn out to be attractive siting options for solar projects. Business is flourishing. Renewable energy policies, coupled with multiple tax and related financial incentives, contribute to the development appeal of these types of sites. Yet, there are special considerations applicable to closed landfill and brownfield sites as compared with greenfield locations.

This conference will examine the significant aspects of developing solar energy on landfills, brownfields and other contaminate sites. It will consider utility interconnection, engineering, permitting, environmental and regulatory, legal, risk and financing issues. Developers, regulatory officials, investors and legal specialists with expertise in this very special arena will conduct the program, using case studies and examples from successful projects.
