State aims to cut carbon footprint with solar deployment

The Commonwealth of Virginia has set a new goal to increase the amount of renewable energy used to power the state’s operations, looking to acquire around 8% of its electricity from solar power over the next three years. The plan, which was announced by Governor Terry McAuliffe and developed by the Governor’s Climate Change and Resiliency Update Commission, calls for increases in solar deployment on state property as well as providing recommendations for the state to address the impacts of climate change.

The 110MW of new solar generation will be made possible through partnerships with Dominion Virginia Power and other third-party developers, and projects will be created through a variety of utility and private agreements. Additionally, the arrays are expected to range in size from utility scale photovoltaic installations to smaller “behind-the-meter” applications.
