Virginia City to Build 10MW of Solar Power Plants in Effort to Reach 100% Renewable Energy by 2050

The City of Danville, Virginia announced today the commencement of two 5MW AC solar power plants, its third and fourth solar power purchase agreements to bring clean, cost-effective solar power to its customers and community. In collaboration with TurningPoint Energy and solar partner, Navisun, the combined 10MW will begin construction by the end of the year in Pittsylvania County with plans to be operational and generate clean energy to Danville Utilities’ customers in the summer of 2020. The two solar projects, named Irish Road Solar and Whitmell Solar, span 100 acres along State Road 703/Irish Road and will generate an estimated 23,668,000 kilowatt-hour annually. That is enough electricity to supply 2.5% of the city’s power needs.
