EPA Screens More Than 66,000 Contaminated Sites for Renewable Energy Potential http://yosemite.epa.gov/opa/admpress.nsf/0/1453114A4728FA0385257BBE00580004 Unless cost is ridiculous, seems like a good idea in general. Sure, many sites will have some issue, i.e. NIMBY, people worried about electricity rates going up instead of staying flat or going down, but still seems worth expanding on. I've always thought that if we cannot switch lots of FF to green, we could at least meet any expanding energy needs with renewables going forward. I realize, though, Sierra Club and other outfits have been partly successful at closing some FF plants. Imagine the potential if they tried for multiple sources on one contaminated site: solar, wind, landfill methane.
