Portland officials to mull over Ocean Avenue solar proposal

Portland’s City Council will make a first reading of a proposal on Monday night that looks to build a solar array atop the former Ocean Avenue Landfill site.

The Associated Press reported that a vote by city officials regarding the proposal could happen in September. The Council’s Energy and Sustainability Committee already approved the plans in a 3-0 vote at a meeting on July 20, according to the Portland Press Herald.

The solar project would require Portland to pay approximately $25,000 per year, with a payback in energy savings projected in 10 years. According to the Press Herald, Portland officials estimate the solar array could generate 660 kW of renewable energy for the city.
