Landfill to Become NYC's Largest Solar Power Facility

Fresh Kills, Staten Island the site of the world’s largest landfill is on the way to becoming the biggest new park in New York in more than 100 years. New parks, playgrounds and soccer fields have opened at the edges of the site.

“Fresh Kills Park will bring a wealth of new outdoor resources to New Yorkers. It’ll also help New York City reach new frontiers in renewable energy production.

Last week, the city announced an agreement with Sun Edison to build the City’s largest solar power facility in Fresh Kills Park.

The solar project will be able to produce up to 10 megawatts of solar energy. That’s enough to power 2,000 homes – and it will increase the City’s total solar power production by 50 percent.

The amount of solar power produced by New York City has increased twenty-fold in the past several years. PlaNYC goal of reducing greenhouse gas emissions 30 percent by 2030is half way there. Our waterways are  cleaner than they’ve been in a century, and our air cleaner than it’s been in decades. 800,000 new trees have been planted around the five boroughs.
