Spending the weekend in my hometown area of Tampa Bay reminds me that Pinellas County is an overbuilt, tiny peninsula. That makes the proposal to use an old landfill as a solar farm an intriguing possibility.
A large, ugly swath of land right off Interstate 275 used to be the Toytown Landfill. Proposals for redevelopment of this piece of land have come and gone over recent years--new home for the Tampa Bay Rays or an office complex. What better place to put a solar farm than on acreage that is unusable for much of anything else? What a great way to introduce the public to alternative energy as they drive toward downtown St Petersburg. According to a recent news report, investors may be looking seriously at this site for a solar venture.
