"Solar PV system installation on landfill and brownfield sites is a great way to leverage unusable land to harvest long term energy generation"
NEW YORK – November 26th, 2014 – GameChange Racking today announced the Pour-in-Place Ballasted Ground System was utilized in the installation of a 1MW solar PV system on a municipal landfill site in Patterson NY. Quality, fast install time and value were the primary factors in the selection of the GameChange system.
Paul Curran, Managing Director of BQ Energy, stated: "Working on a landfill requires that you pay careful attention to any equipment that will contact the existing ground surface, so that the environmental integrity of the site can be maintained. Working with GameChange allowed us to design this installation cost effectively to ensure that our project resulted in an overall environmental gain in the Town of Patterson."
Teresa Zhao, Director of Sales at GameChange Racking, was quoted: "Solar PV system installation on landfill and brownfield sites is a great way to leverage unusable land to harvest long term energy generation. There are over 100,000 brownfields in the USA and we expect to see this trend continue, especially in densely populated areas where land value is higher.
The GameChange Racking patent pending protected Pour-in-Place Ballasted Ground System has moved to a leadership position in the solar PV industry for landfills and brownfields due to its superior quality, fast installation time and unbeatable value pricing."
GameChange Pour-in-Place is an industry leader for ballasted ground systems both for landfills and for rocky sites where screw and pile installations are often too expensive.
