Former landfill site to be turned into solar facility with more than 7,800 panels

The mayor of Rochester, New York, has cut the ribbon on a new solar facility situated on a former landfill site that has been vacant since 1972.

In an announcement Wednesday, authorities said that the new Solar Field, as it’s known, would help to power City Hall and divert over 2,000 tons of carbon dioxide from the atmosphere. There are more than 7,800 panels on the site and it will produce roughly 3 million kilowatt hours of electricity each year.
