Real estate developer Vita Nuova and solar contractor AC Power are partnering to develop PV projects on formerly contaminated sites. The collaboration has a shared goal to sustainably redevelop underutilized properties and rebuild communities.
“Vita Nuova seeks to expand its work in sustainably reusing impacted and underutilized sites by creating this strategic alliance with AC Power. We appreciate their focus on land that is previously disturbed rather than greenfields,” said Michael B. Taylor, president of Vita Nuova.
Vita Nuova specializes in site redevelopment, land reuse planning and community revitalization. It serves both public and private entities, revitalizing industrial sites across North America and reopening them to redevelopment for new, economically viable uses.
AC Power has experience transforming brownfield sites, landfills and Superfund sites into solar energy facilities, connecting locally sourced power to communities and businesses. Its projects facilitate workforce development programs for local citizens, generate tax revenue and solve site development issues.
“With the strategic vision and experience of Vita Nuova and the practical expertise of AC Power, this team will channel the momentum of the Inflation Reduction Act to repurpose sites, empower communities and support workforce development,” said Annika Colston, president and founder of AC Power. “We will do more together — more projects, more complex problem solving, and more community benefits — thereby achieving the nation’s goal of environmental justice in America’s great energy transition.”
