Simply by entering one (1+) property of at least one (1+) acre in size into the event’s Solar Market Mixer you can attend Brightfields 2019 - New England at no cost. In this open, no-obligation networking forum, potential brightfield projects will come to life as participants meet eye-to-eye and explore the solar development potential of thousands of greenfield, brownfield and landfill acres in the Northeast.
During the structured networking forum in the Solar Market Mixer, site owners are met by solar developers, investors and professionals face-to-face for personal introductions, to ask questions and to explore potential development opportunities. By connecting both sides of potential solar projects, Brightfields 2019 - New England offers the unique opportunity to engage multiple potential deal partners in person.
With substantial policy movement in states across the region recently, including sweeteners for brownfield-to-brightfield development in Rhode Island and new rules in Vermont to spur solar development on landfills and brownfields, Brightfields 2019 - New England will provide attendees with a timely brief on the current state of laws, incentives and programs impacting the solar space presented by the key agency staff and private sector professionals who know brightfield development best.
If you are a landowner, company or community interested in potentially pursuing a solar project on your land, then there's simply no better opportunity in the Northeast this summer to engage the market, explore your options, access solar pros, and test your site's potential in a live brightfield marketplace event.

What cities have said about past BL brightfield events:
According to the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE), a Brightfield is an abandoned or contaminated property that is redeveloped through the incorporation of solar energy, which can be many different types of solar applications including photovoltaic arrays. Brightfield development leads to economic development, environmental cleanup and improved air quality by bringing pollution free solar energy and high tech manufacturing jobs to brownfield sites. A Brightfield's current or desired use is for solar energy production, or it has been professionally designated as suitable for use as a productive solar site; typically verified by one or more third-party reports. Ready Brightfields have some, if not all, utility infrastructure already in place or may simply be near utility lines amenable to solar power distribution. Use the Brightfield tag on BL as one of the many tags in our handy Taxonomy to post any kind of property, project, RFP, RFQ or RFI or planning effort where the solar is relevant
