TRC Wins National Award for Landfill Solar Array Reuse Project

Recognized for Photovoltaic Project Distinction with Client SunEdison

LOWELL, MA--(Marketwired - May 26, 2015) - TRC Companies, Inc. (NYSE: TRR) today announced that it, together with its client SunEdison, has been honored with a Photovoltaic Project of Distinction Award for the solar array project at the Sullivan's Ledge Landfill in New Bedford, Massachusetts. The award recognizes innovative approaches to project design, technology, financing and community engagement. It is sponsored by the Solar Electric Industries Association and the Solar Electric Power Association and was given at the 2015 PV America Conference recently held in Boston.

"TRC is proud to be part of the award-winning Sullivan's Ledge solar project team," said Chris Vincze, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. "Our experts deliver innovative solutions across the country to support customers and communities as they develop new sources of cost-effective, clean energy while transforming and reusing previously contaminated land."

Sullivan's Ledge, a former landfill owned by the City of New Bedford, is a Federal Superfund site. It is the first Superfund landfill to be developed in Massachusetts and one of the first to be developed in the United States. The site was fully remediated in the 1990s and this solar array is the first project for its reuse.

TRC aided the construction of the 1.75 MWDC array by providing full-time oversight to ensure the underlying landfill cap was not impacted during construction. TRC also developed the array Work Plan that was approved by all regulatory agencies and submitted the Final Work Plan Completion Report to the EPA.
