ECONOMIC BENEFITS FOR MUNICIPALITIES TO DEVELOP SOLAR ON BROWNFIELDS
Presented by:
Ardi Arian & Greg Rosen, Suntech Power Development America LLC
Most people think of brownfields purely as liabilities to their communities, but some brownfields can be used to generate tax revenue, clean energy, and other benefits to the governments and communities where they are located.  This webinar will review the types of brownfields that could be suitable for development, and the factors affecting the feasibility of building clean energy infrastructure on such properties.  As financing for such projects is critical for projects to move forward, a thorough range of options for cost effectively financing such projects will also be covered.  Finally, a number of case studies of existing solar on brownfield projects will be presented to show how others have been able to deploy such projects.
Areas to be covered include:
  • Definition and types of Brownfields 
  • Economic benefits for Cities and Towns
  • What Brownfields are suitable for development
  • Factors affecting the feasibility of the project
  • Options for project financing
  • Case studies of existing projects
