Former Savannah landfill gets its day in the sun with new solar farm

Four thousand solar panels face south at the site of a old city landfill on East President Street, poised to produce energy.

The new solar farm sits atop the Deptford Landfill, disused for more than 50 years, at the entrance to Dulany Industries’ new multi-use industrial complex called SeaPoint. Georgia Power personnel were readying the solar panels’ connections to the grid Thursday.
