Conti Solar has begun construction on the largest landfill solar project in Ohio. Located in Cuyahoga County, the 4MW project is owned and operated by IGS Solar. The solar project was developed by Enerlogics and McDonald Hopkins, and when complete, will provide over 5,000,000 kilowatt hours of clean solar electricity to county-owned facilities annually.
"It was essential that we partnered with a firm that has a proven track record in developing solar projects on top of sensitive landfill sites," said Patrick Smith, vice president of IGS Solar. "It's a unique niche, but Conti Solar's vast experience, impeccable standards, and understanding of IGS Solar's vision for the community has made Conti Solar the ideal partner for this project."
"IGS Solar is helping Cuyahoga County reduce energy costs for the next 20 years. They have been a reliable energy partner supporting the efficient and cost-effective addition of clean renewable energy for the county's benefit, both environmentally and financially," said Matthew Skidmore, CEO of Conti Solar. "We hope to continue working with IGS Solar on projects like this in Ohio and other Midwestern states."
