Communities across the country are creating jobs and stimulating economic growth by developing renewable energy projects on contaminated lands. RE-Powering America’s Lands Initiative tracks the economic and environmental benefits associated with completed sites, as identified and reported by parties directly involved with their respective projects. Common benefits reported include revenues from land leases and taxes, electricity cost savings associated with the reduced need to purchase power from the grid, job creation, and reduced greenhouse gas emissions. This resource is for informational purposes only and may not be a comprehensive list of all benefits realized by completed projects on contaminated lands.You may need a PDF reader to view some of the files on this page.
