    This map was developed by SRA International for the U. S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). Results are based on site screening criteria
    adapted from National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) criteria and GIS data provided by NREL, EPA and the Pennsylvania Department of
    Environmental Protection. This map and its associated data are intended to provide a general understanding of the renewable energy potential of
    abandoned coal mine areas in Pennsylvania; additional site specific analysis is required to determine the actual potential of these sites. These sites
    are tracked and monitored by state agencies. For further information, please see the accompanying Data Guidelines document at
