RE-Powering Site Profile
RE-Powering Site Profile Page
EPA’s RE-Powering America’s Land Initiative encourages the reuse of current and formerly contaminated lands, landfills, and mine sites for renewable energy development, when such development is aligned with the community’s vision for the site. The 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.
The following site profile was generated from data included in the RE-Powering Mapper tool. The Mapper makes it possible to view EPA's information about renewable energy potential on contaminated lands, landfills, and mine sites. The sites were identified using screening criteria developed in collaboration with the U.S. Department of Energy’s National Renewable Energy Lab. Over 130,000 sites have been screened. As part of this effort, EPA included Federally tracked sites and collaborated with 17 state agencies (California, Colorado, Connecticut, Florida, Hawaii, Illinois, Maryland, Massachusetts, Minnesota, Missouri, New Jersey, New York, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Texas, Virginia, and West Virginia) to include their readily available data. The Initiative intends to update and expand the number of states included in the Mapper periodically. This data collection and screening was last performed in August 2018. For more complete information about the screening process and data, please consult the Data Documentation for Mapping and Screening
