Canton, Massachusetts will be home to New England's largest solar array when the canadian pharmacy viagra generic town installs the renewable energy project atop an old sealed landfill.

The landfill was capped 25 years ago and what is cialis professional has been out of use since, but now the site will be home 24,000 solar panels capable of viagrabest viagra producing 5.6 MW of solar power.  The project could be completed as soon as 2012 and is being built by Southern Sky Renewable Energy.  The array is expected to bring the town $70 million in revenue and energy savings over 25 years.

Landfills are great locations for solar installations because they're flat, free of trees and are removed from buildings and structures, so there are no shadows to worry about.

The Canton array will likely be one of many landfill arrays coming to online ordering cialis Massachusetts as many towns are looking for new sources of revenue and the state has set a goal of installing 250 MW of solar power by 2017.  The state currently has 76 MW installed.

Landfill gas
written by Erik, February 22, 2011
Does anyone how the need to torch/combust the methane produced by organic waste in the we choice beta blockers and cialis landfill will interact with the solar panels? If they will bring in transmission lines, perhaps a small natural gas turbine could be employed?

Brightfield Solar in Brockton, MA
written by gmoke, February 23, 2011
MA is also home to an earlier PV development that may be of interest.

"In 2000 the city of Brockton, about 20 miles south of www.gallin.fr Boston, received one of the first US Department of Energy brightfields grants. Six years later, after many twists and turns, the city managed to construct a utility-scale solar array across three acres on the former Brockton Gas Works site, a 19th century manufactured gas plant (MGP). When completed, it was the largest brightfield in the country, containing nearly 1,400 solar modules with a generating capacity of 465 kilowatts (kW), enough energy to power 77 homes."

harvesting the gas
written by sarah, February 26, 2011
perhaps the gas coming from the chip cialis landfill could be harvested somehow since there would be all the electricity junction and infrastructure piped to the site anyway... not sure how.
