Biggest Solar Deal In Virginia Signed By Fairfax County

Solar power purchase agreements have been signed by Fairfax County with three teams of solar developers in what it calls the largest power purchase agreement initiative by a local municipality in the commonwealth.

According to wtop.com, “The power purchase agreement service providers will install, own, manage and maintain the solar installations, which will encompass photovoltaic arrays at more than 100 government buildings, county schools, and park sites. Over the course of the 25-year contracts, Fairfax County said, there are a potential savings of $60 million in utility costs. Over terms of the contracts, the PPA’s will generate 1.73 million megawatt-hours of renewable energy, the equivalent of the electricity used by about 214,000 homers in a single year.”

Fairfax County Executive Bryan Hill said, “Fairfax County is excited to take a major step toward a more sustainable energy future. Implementing on-site solar will hopefully lower our electricity costs as we support our Board of Supervisors’ adopted priorities.”

As per wtop.com, “The county recently established an Office of Environmental and Energy Coordination, responsible for Fairfax County’s new countywide energy and climate action plan. Fairfax County did not disclose the financial terms of the PPA contracts. They were awarded to three teams consisting of Sigora Solar and Standard Solar; Dominion Energy subsidiary BrightSuite and Sun Tribe Solar; and Ipsum Solar and SunLight General Capital.”
