NYC to Build Wind and Solar Farm on Old Dump Site

Having written recently about waste-to-energy (WTE) programs at landfills worldwide, this item from Clean Technica about a planned wind and solar farm on an old New York City dump fits the picture. Best of fortune launching this renewable energy concept, and many more like around the world. We need an abundance of this kind of planning to build the sustainability footprint.

    I have been tracking what they have been doing in Florida with the solar farms and I think it’s a wonderful idea to open up some un-used land and put solar cells up as a power plant, or if you’re in a state with wind then a wind powered system! Solar is expensive to start with (I have looked for my home) but once it’s up it pays for itself in a matter of months (to years), none the less its free energy!
