Houston Selects Firm Proposing Solar Energy Farm at Former Sunnyside Landfill
The Sunnyside Energy Team is taking a wholistic approach to repurposing a landfill knowing that this is good for the community and good for the environment within the city limits of Houston, Texas. As landscape architects and planners, 2GHO’s role is to create pollinator landscapes among the solar array, beautify the site buffers and deal with stormwater run-off by capturing, containing and filtering through bio-retention in areas placed in areas not containing buried trash. Future phases include a jogging/bicycle trail on the south, west sides of the 240 acre urban infill parcel. “This is social and environmental inequity turned around,” said Emily O’Mahoney, Partner at 2GHO.
