Converting unused land into revenue-generating use

AC Power, LLC develops alternative energy projects by changing unusable or low value land into revenue-generating, clean energy sites. AC Power converts landfills, brownfields, or other low value land into renewable energy sites, generating income from sites that otherwise would be left vacant and unproductive.

Large-scale solar solutions

Solar photovoltaic (PV) projects present opportunities to offset the costs of landfill and brownfield maintenance or in many cases generate profits.

Project development know-how

With experience across all aspects of project development, AC Power can turn a simple idea into a revenue-generating operation in as little as 12 months.

What we do

Our mission

The aim of AC Power is to increase the use of alternative energy through development of technically viable and economically attractive projects on low value land. Developing a solar project on a former landfill – often owned by a public entity – simply makes sense. However, these projects often require innovation and determination to bring them to fruition. That is what AC Power does best!
