Mining companies are increasingly looking to solar energy, both as a way to increase efficiency, revitalize brownfields properties, and reduce reclamation obligations via a new form of post-mine land use.
Past-use mine sites make excellent hosts for large-scale solar + storage installations, as they’re large and flat, with pre-cleared land that reduces the cost of building. Further, public officials are keen to find productive uses for brownfields that produce clean energy AND maintain jobs, ultimately winning the support of local communities. Mine operators looking to site solar projects on their brownfields also stand to benefit from streamlined permitting and tax incentives.
Solar energy can also benefit your active mine site. Our team of engineers can work to develop a system fully integrated into your operation, where permissible. Our projects can help you reduce costs for energy-intensive operations, create alternative revenue streams and help your company meet ESG goals.
The Redeux team has strong ties to the mining industry — we understand both the liabilities behind brownfields and their enormous potential. We help navigate the complex world of brownfields revitalization and transform past-use sites into renewable energy plants that generate clean energy and alternative revenue.
