The 7-megawatt dc solar power generation plant, developed by Greenwood Energy, Brightfields Development and Wolfe Energy and installed by Conti Solar (the turnkey EPC contractor), is the finishing touch on a major remediation project that transformed unused landfill to a renewable energy generation site delivering enough electricity to power 1,200 homes.

Steve Daniel, EVP, Solar FlexRack said, "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. Congratulations to Greenwood Energy and to all who worked on the successful Elizabeth Mine Superfund Project."

William Bushnell, Director of Engineering, Greenwood Energy said, "Greenwood Energy selected the highest quality equipment providers to participate in the Elizabeth Mine Superfund Solar Project. We want to thank all of the agencies who supported the development of this solar project including the US Environmental Protection Agency and the Vermont Agency of Natural Resources."

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.
