Based on preliminary assessments, Green Needham believes that the area top of the capped landfill could support a 2-3 Megawatt (MW) Solar PV system. A 2 MW system would generate about 2.3 million kilowatt hours (kWh) of electricity per year, or about 28% of the total electricity used by the Town’s Municipal and School buildings in FY 2011.

How much electricity could be generated by a PV installation at the RTS?
