“This project is a significant step towards meeting Virginia’s renewable energy goals and is a harbinger of good things to come,” said Governor Terry McAuliffe. “Solar energy is an essential part of our efforts to diversify our energy mix and build a new Virginia economy. Virginia has a host of other commercial-size solar projects in the pipeline, and I look forward to continuing our work to make our Commonwealth a global leader in the renewable energy sector.”

Construction of the approximately 200-acre facility is expected to begin early next year and to be completed by the end of 2017. Costs are estimated to fall between $30 and $35 million.

“Clean energy is the foundation of our economic and environmental future. Supporting Virginia’s solar industry and developing our renewable energy portfolio will safeguard our natural resources and allow our economy to flourish,” said Virginia Secretary of Natural Resources Molly Ward.
