About the Superfund Redevelopment Initiative
This nationally coordinated effort provides EPA and its partners with a process to return Superfund sites to productive use. Learn more at Superfund Redevelopment Initiative.
Redevelopment at the Site
Chevron Technology Ventures constructed a concentrating photovoltaic (CPV) facility on a 20-acre portion of the site in 2010. The CPV facility’s 173 solar panels automatically track the path of the sun and, over the course of a year, produce about one megawatt of energy. This is about two million kilowatt hours, or roughly enough to power 150 homes. The facility has been operational since April 2011. Kit Carson Electric Cooperative is purchasing the electricity under a 20-year agreement.
Economic Activity at the Site
As of December 2016, EPA did not have economic data related to on-site businesses, or economic data were not applicable due to site use. View information about redevelopment economics at Superfund sites.
