Project Goal

A primary goal of the project was to identify if any areas previously used for mining could be redeveloped to support utility scale solar electricity generating projects.

A secondary goal was to use the analysis to engage in further discussion with stakeholders on how additional or changes to existing policies, processes, or infrastructure could alter the criteria on these mine sites to create more favorable conditions for development, a defacto gap analysis.
