The state has unveiled a new web-based platform that will help businesses locate reclaimed mine lands for large scale solar projects.

The Energy and Environment Cabinet says this web platform, aimed at identifying solar projects providing 10 megawatts or more of electricity, would give Kentucky an important economic development tool to attract companies that want sustainable energy as a significant portion of their energy portfolios.

Local governments, city planners, solar developers, as well as all businesses and industry, can use Solar Siting Potential in Kentucky to identify solar sites using criteria such as typography, land cover and access to infrastructure, according to the Cabinet.
