Source Renewables received re-zoning approval to develop two community solar projects on the Marilla Street Landfill in South Buffalo, New York.
“Our company’s mission is to bring green energy to communities throughout New York,” said Andrew Day, Partner at Source Renewables. “We are extremely pleased to see that the Marilla Street Landfill site will now be home to a community solar and clean energy development with the re-zoning approval received today. This initiative is not only good for the environment but will also provide solar cost savings for the residents of Buffalo. It’s a win-win situation.”
Source Renewables plans to start construction of the two 5 MW solar arrays in 2022.
The Marilla Street Landfill, which is monitored by the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation, was used as a disposal area by the former Republic Steel Company for waste material from steelmaking operations. These community solar projects represent a significant opportunity to reenergize under-utilized property to produce green electricity, jobs, increased tax revenue, and save local residents money on their electricity bills.
