Two big solar projects are coming to capped landfill sites in Yates County, New York. BQ Energy Development and the county signed a 35-year land lease allowing for up to 37 MW of PV arrays installed on above-ground ballast block foundations on the two capped landfill properties. Once projects are completed, Yates County would receive almost $200,000 in annual rent as well as reduced price electric power sales. SourceFingerLakes1.com
