EPA’s RE-Powering Mapper, a series of Google Earth KMZ files, makes it possible to view EPA’s information about renewable energy potential on contaminated lands, landfills, and mine sites, alongside other information contained in Google Earth. Click on an EPA region to download data for that area.
Screening results for over 66,000 sites for solar, wind, biomass, and geothermal energy
Search options by renewable energy at various scales, contaminated land type, or specific site names
Site–specific reports with site information; EPA Region and program managing the site; and specific acreage and renewable energy resource information.
RE–Powering Mapper GIS Shapefile (13 MB)
The RE-Powering Mapper information can also be downloaded as a shapefile, which provides spatial locations and data used to determine renewable energy potential and associated criteria for each site. This data was used to create the RE–Powering Mapper and the national maps.
