Learn more about solar of minelands!

Prioritizing the development of solar on former mine sites can serve as an economic boon to local economies that once relied on the activity at these mine sites.

The Solar Workgroup actively works to develop solar projects on formerly-mined sites.

In a region that has a long history of energy production, solar technology offers enormous potential for economic development and job growth.
