Project Navigator, Ltd. specializes in developing small scale PV solar power projects on environmentally impacted land such as Brownfield sites, Superfund sites or landfills. Our particular interest is sites and projects close to load in an urban location. (Read more about solar on landfills here.)
Since 1997, Project Navigator, Ltd. (PNL) has provided environmental engineering solutions for the problems associated with waste disposal sites (e.g. Superfund sites), impacted land or Brownfield sites.
Our client base is Fortune 500 companies and municipalities who assume the responsibility for clean up and site management. After cleanup, these sites can often be put back into productive reuse.
Our focus is putting such sites back into use as small scale photovoltaic solar power facilities.
Small scale (e.g. up to 5 to 10 MW), wasteland-sited, distributed power facilities have the following advantages over large central scale facilities:
- Power is generated close to load
- Power can be sold directly to local user(s)
- Project economics become viable because of siting on an environmentally compromised site
- New, high cost transmission is not required
- Permitting is fast paced when compared to central facilities, and,
- Construction can be accomplished in months
PNL's PVNavigator venture combines PNL's traditional Brownfields capabilities and environmental project management and engineering expertise, with those of key partners, to plan and develop solar power projects on urban waste land.
