Utility Scale Solar

Utility-scale solar energy plants generate a large amount of electricity that is transmitted from one location (the solar energy plant) to many users throughout the transmission grid.

Distributed Solar

Distributed generation (DG) refers to electricity that is produced at or near the point where it is used. Distributed solar energy can be located on rooftops or ground-mounted, and is typically connected to the local utility distribution grid.

Behind-the-Meter Solar

Behind-the-meter solar is designed to produce electricity on-site in order to offset all or a portion of electricity used by the building(s) the solar is attached to.


Surplus or Excess Property

Property that is not currently being utilized. A surplus property may be out of date or no longer working.


Former industrial or commercial sites where future use is affected by real or perceived environmental contamination.


A place to dispose of refuse and other waste material by burying it and covering it over with soil, especially as a method of filling in or extending usable land.


A Superfund site is any land in the United States that has been contaminated by hazardous waste and identified by the EPA as a candidate for cleanup because it poses a risk to human health and/or the environment. These sites are placed on the National Priorities List (NPL).
