From Landfill to Solar Farm


In what is being described as one of the most innovative government projects in North Carolina, the Buncombe County Board of Commissioners recently agreed to use the site of a former county landfill as a solar farm.

According to Brownie Newman, chairman of the Buncombe County Board of Commissioners, finding appropriate sites for solar farms in the mountains “is a challenge.” The former landfill site is unique because it sits on 25 acres of flat land in an otherwise mountainous region.

The solar farm is projected to create 18% of all of the energy necessary to support Buncombe County government.
