Solar Energy Sites: Considerations for Areas of Vegetation or Contaminated and Disturbed Lands

Series: Energy Science, Engineering and Technology
BISAC: TEC062000

Large-scale solar facilities have the potential to contribute significantly to national electricity production. Many solar installations are large-scale or utility-scale, with a capacity over 1 MW and connected directly to the electric grid. Large-scale solar facilities offer an opportunity to achieve economies of scale in solar deployment, yet there have been concerns about the amount of land required for solar projects and the impact of solar projects on local habitat. This book provides an overview of opportunities for co-location of solar energy technologies and vegetation as well as discusses the solar development on contaminated and disturbed lands.
