Underutilized Resources and Tremendous Opportunities: Brownfields and Other Challenging Properties as Sites for Solar Projects

Join us for our always well-attended, highly anticipated North Farm Yacht Club annual gathering! For those of you have not had a chance to attend in past years or are new to REI, you can look forward to good company and a beautiful setting.

As this year’s guest presenters, Everett Tatelbaum from Kearsarge Energy, LP, Edward Summerly and Doug Le Do from GZA, Geoenviromental, Inc., will discuss the challenges and advantages of developing solar energy facilities on Brownfields sites and other types of under-utilized property including closed landfills, environmentally impacted properties and other non-prime real-estate. Brownfields are generally underutilized properties which offer unique opportunities and challenges for solar development, and often receive favorable regulatory and/or financial treatment. This presentation will focus on the permitting, engineering, financing and development of utility-scale solar energy projects on non-prime developable parcels.
