At Republic Services’ Hickory Ridge Landfill near Atlanta, GA, solar panels were installed to generate clean electricity and provide a reuse of the landfill. This award-winning project, which sits on 48-acres and is one of the largest solar energy-generating facilities in the state of Georgia, converts sunlight into a clean, renewable energy resource for the local community, including landfill gas and solar electric power.

Fox 5 Atlanta reports that solar energy is also generating over 4,000 jobs in the state of Georgia alone. See the Hickory Ridge Facility and watch the story here.
