West Hartford-based Verogy to convert 3 capped landfills in CT into solar energy farms

A solar energy developer based in West Hartford, Verogy, has received approvals to convert former landfills in Deep River, Middletown and Montville into solar energy projects. The company announced it has received permits from the state Department of Energy and Environmental Protection to create the energy farms. Verogy plans to install solar arrays on the capped landfills, which will produce a total of 2.15 megawatts of clean energy – enough to power 252 homes for a year. Verogy said the projects will give the contaminated parcels, which total 7 acres, “a new lease on life” by transforming them from environmental burdens into useful assets.
