The one megawatt installation is located at the Hickory Ridge Solid Waste Landfill in Conley, Ga., and is viewable during take-off and landing at Atlanta’s Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport. The closed landfill is owned and maintained by Republic Services of Phoenix, Ariz.
The UNI-SOLAR lightweight, flexible solar panels are bonded to a thermoplastic polyolefin (TPO) geomembrane manufactured by Carlisle Energy Services, a United Solar channel partner. The integrated system consisting of nearly 7,000 UNI-SOLAR PVL-144 modules over 10-acres of landfill cover is a complete geomembrane cap closure system. The project is expected to provide a carbon offset of 1,374 metric tons per year. In addition, the annual energy generation is enough to supply over 200 households with electricity each year.
