According to a recent EPA analysis there are approximately 1.5 million acres of mine land across the United States.2 Repurposing this extensive area of land for clean energy projects could generate up to 89 GW of clean energy, enough to power millions of American households. However, only a few small- scale (Clean energy projects on mine land provide an attractive alternative to using undisturbed natural, agricultural, and other greenfield land for development. Mine land is often located near critical infrastructure that makes it suitable for clean energy development, including electric substations, transmission lines, and access roads or rail lines. Mine lands are often in communities that already house a workforce skilled in industrial trades relevant to many clean energy applications. Furthermore, mine land possesses unique attributes and conditions that can accelerate the deployment of some clean energy technologies. Some examples include the following:

  • Utilizing vast expanses of flat mine lands which could be used to generate electricity from photovoltaic (PV) solar;
  • Taking advantage of the spatial connection between geothermal systems and mineral deposits to accelerate development of geothermal resources for clean heat or electricity; and
  • Capitalizing on the opportunity to store clean energy utilizing previously constructed reservoirs with adjacent topography from pumped hydro storage.Clean energy projects on current and former mine land could create opportunities for direct community benefit and ownership,3 resulting in economic growth. Often serving as economic anchors in areas with limited economic diversity, mines impact the livelihoods, health, wealth, and environments of adjacent communities during, and long after, closure.Requirements
