Ohio County Ready To Reap Benefits Of Landfill Solar Project

This month, Cuyahoga County, Cleveland Public Power (CPP) and IGS Solar will begin construction of a solar project located on 17 acres of a 75-acre landfill site in Brooklyn, Ohio.

Estimated to provide over 5 GWh of electricity per year, the project will consist of 35,520 panels and be sized at approximately 4 MW DC – enough to supply approximately 5% of the electricity consumption for 16 county-owned commercial buildings. This is equivalent to powering roughly 500 residential homes.
