The Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA’s) RE-Powering Mapper, a series of Google Earth files, makes it possible to view EPA's information about renewable energy potential on contaminated lands, landfills, and mine sites, alongside other information contained in Google Earth. This tool screens more than 66,000 EPA- and state-tracked sites, comprising over 35 million acres. Using screening criteria developed in collaboration with the U.S. Department of Energy’s National Renewable Energy Laboratory, each site was screened for developing solar, wind, biomass and geothermal facilities at various scales.
