Brooklyn solar project is finalist for 2018 Solar Builder Project of the Year
Wise has provided updates on the project from its earliest days in 2017 to the installation of the last solar panels in August.
“The project is a win for everyone," said Wise. "It allows the City of Brooklyn to receive revenue for a closed landfill, Cleveland Public Power expands its footprint, the residents of Brooklyn get electric choice, and Cuyahoga County receives renewable energy at a cost savings to grid power.”
As noted by Solar Builder, the four-megawatt solar farm is the largest landfill solar project completed in Ohio, and one of the largest solar projects of any kind in the state. It is capable of saving Cuyahoga County as much as $3 million on utility bills over the next 25 years.
