Green light for Virginia solar scheme

A permit has been issued for construction of a solar project designed to power more than 4,000 homes in Virginia.

The Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ) issued the permit for Strata Solar Development to construct and operate the 19.8MW facility in Gloucester County.

“Once complete, the new Gloucester facility will allow thousands of Virginians to sustainably power their homes and businesses,” said Northam. “This latest announcement is proof that Virginia’s solar sector is growing. We will continue to support investments in solar energy infrastructure that will bring low-cost, renewable energy to all corners of the Commonwealth.”

“We’re thrilled to welcome Strata Solar to Gloucester,” said secretary of natural resources Matt Strickler. “Projects like this further solidify our commitment to meet Virginia’s needs with clean, reliable sources of energy. Virginia’s growing solar industry is a major driver of new jobs and opportunities in the energy workforce.”
