GLRPPR Sector Resource: Siting Renewable Energy on Potentially Contaminated Land and Mine Sites

Title:
Siting Renewable Energy on Potentially Contaminated Land and Mine Sites

Abstract:
EPA is encouraging renewable energy development on current and formerly contaminated land and mine sites when it is aligned with the community's vision for the site. This initiative identifies the renewable energy potential of these sites and provides other useful resources for communities, developers, industry, state and local governments or anyone interested in reusing these sites for renewable energy development.
