NORFOLK, Va. — Tuesday night, Norfolk City Council members voted to approve converting an old landfill to a solar farm. It’s at the Campostella landfill which has been closed for about 30 years.
The group, Community Power Group LCC, will operate and maintain a solar energy and storage facility on the property.
City officials said Community Power Group will provide an option for residents to subscribe to a community solar program, and save an estimated 5% to 10% on their electric bill.
Construction is expected to last less than a year.
