Located at the former Emerson Street Landfill, the solar facility consists of 7,866 solar panels that will generate approximately 3 million kilowatt hours of electricity annually. The City of Rochester is the direct recipient of the energy produced, which will help power City Hall and divert more than 2,000 tons of carbon dioxide from the atmosphere. “This Solar Field will save taxpayer money, but more importantly it will help us protect the environment for future generations by reducing our carbon footprint,” said Mayor Lovely A. Warren. The 7-acre site sat as a vacant brownfield since the early 1970’s and is now the location for renewable energy generation.
