The Department of Energy Resources (DOER) has published a new resource for those seeking to learn more about solar PV on landfills. This publication, The Guide to Developing Solar Photovoltaics at Massachusetts Landfills, is a 40-page guide intended to  help local officials identify, evaluate, and pursue opportunities to use undeveloped landfill space to generate electricity. The guidebook speaks to the physical requirements of PV systems, project economics, landfill considerations, procurement details, and the PV development process.

 Many communities interested in renewable energy have questions and concerns about net metering and interconnection. This is particularly true among communities exploring landfill solar or community wind projects, which are largely dependent on the Massachusetts net metering incentive.

DOER has succeeded in getting a commitment from the Massachusetts utilities to host monthly distributed (on-site) generation workshops. These workshops will cover the basics of interconnecting distributed generation technologies in investor-owned utility territories in Massachusetts as well as other pertinent distributed generation topics, including net metering. The DOER’s Massachusetts Distributed Generation and Interconnection Main Page has more information about upcoming workshops, as well as links to presentation materials from past events. In addition, the DOER DG site provides additional resources on these topics, including the “Basics of Interconnection and Net Metering.”
