Comments Off on Bloomberg Plans to Turn Old NYC Landfills into Solar Power Plants

Mayor Bloomberg has outlined some new additions to his PlaNYC , which aims to cut New York City’s emissions by 30 percent by 2030.  One of the major new projects will be the building of solar power plants on old landfill sites. New York City has about 3,000 acres of shuttered landfills and through this plan 250 of those will be outfitted with solar power.  Once those plants come online, they’ll have a capacity of 50 MW, enough to power 50,000 homes.
