Westwood Renewables Providing Design And Engineering For Minn. Project


Westwood Renewables LLC has been selected to provide design and engineering services on the Minnesota Pollution Control Agency's (MPCA) solar pilot project. The project will be a large-scale solar photovoltaic facility located on a closed landfill site in Olmsted County near Rochester, Minn.

The solar facility will be up to 2 MW in size, making it among the largest in the state, Westwood Renewables says. The project is estimated to be operational in 2011. The MPCA will use data from this pilot plant as a model for the state's other closed landfill sites, which have the potential to be similarly developed and contribute distributed energy to communities and utilities around Minnesota.
