Town hopes to turn brownfield green by Luke Marshall Naugatuck Citizens News (CT) September 11, 2014BEACON FALLS - Town and state officials are working to bring green energy to Beacon Falls.
During the Board of Selectmen's meeting Sept. 8, First Selectman Christopher Bielik said the town is looking at a brownfield on Blackberry Hill Road as a potential location for a solar farm.
The site, which served as the town’s landfill until the 1980s, would be converted to produce energy for municipal use through a state grant.
"It ties into a state project for accessing brownfield properties and being able to convert them into some kind of actual useable function," Bielik said. "The fact is we have a brownfield in town that is probably a candidate for something similar to this."
