he first innovative landfill solar panel project in North Carolina is coming to Onslow County.
The project will generate revenue by placing 6,000 solar panels on top of 15 acres that was an old landfill.
County officials began a Solid Waste Renewable Energy Program at the Onslow County Landfill in 2012.
A Landfill Gas to Energy Plant was built at no cost to the county.
Now, the second phase of the Solid Waste Renewable Energy Program begins with solar panels.
