Abandoned Coal  Mine Areas  in  Pennsylvania
        with  Non-Grid Connected Photovoltaic (PV) Solar  Energy Generation Potential
     Solar Resource







                 Very Good

                                 Abandoned Coal Mine Areas
Screening Criteria
Solar resource availability, site size, and
  distance to transmission lines and roads
  are not screening criteria
All sites are generally considered favorable for
  siting non-grid connected PV
         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
