The City of Wildwood will be talking about a new solar farm project during a community meeting to be held Wednesday evening. City leaders say the Wildwood Community Advisory Board will hold a meeting Wednesday evening and a presentation will be made regarding the city’s solar project which will be located on a 20 acre parcel of land in the community.
According to a press release issued by the city:
The City of Wildwood’s Solar Bay project proposes use of the inactive Wildwood Landfill in a way that will generate green energy at the same time it provides Wildwood with a new and uniquely designed multipurpose park.
The initial phase of the project involves sealing the landfill, preparing it for placement of solar panels, and partnering with private companies that can take advantage of state and federal solar incentives not available to municipalities.
“With the solar project, this administration is creating a lifetime of ratables, a revenue source that will help lower taxes,” said Mayor Gary DeMarzo. “This is truly a spectacular opportunity for our residents.”
