The solar site screening decision tree guides users through a process for screening sites for their suitability for future redevelopment with solar photovoltaic energy. EPA encourages the development of renewable energy on contaminated lands, landfills and mine sites and this tool explores such sites. The tool is not intended to replace or substitute the need for a detailed site-specific assessment that would follow an initial screening based on the decision tree. Tips on how to obtain information relevant to various parameters in the decision tree are provided.
