Un-doubtfully, there are great benefits from building PV systems on capped landfills and other waste containment sites. These projects revitalize otherwise unusable property at lower land costs. In this paper the authors describe a field test and case study for capping a Dutch landfill with a solar capping layer. Technical feasibility of the capping could be demonstrated in the field test. Scenarios for economic feasibility were calculated. Results show that the exposed geo-membrane solution is very promising in terms of performance, applicability and financial sustainability.
