MassDEP helps advance clean and efficient sources of energy at contaminated properties through assessment, remediation and redevelopment.
There are over 40,000 hazardous waste sites in Massachusetts. These include simple spills during a fuel oil delivery and complex Superfund sites. The cleanup and redevelopment of these waste sites may provide beneficial opportunities for the deployment of renewable energy technologies including Solar Photovoltaics, Wind, Renewable Thermal/Ground-Source Heat Pumps, Hydroelectric and Energy Storage. This site will help you navigate the technical and financial considerations for each technology.
