local case study

United States

Sunfish Solar

Sunfish Solar is an 80-megawatt (MWac) solar development project that will be located in Orange County, Virginia. This project will span approximately 588 acres and will connect to the electrical grid via a new switching station off of the existing Oak Green - Mountain Run 115kV transmission line. The project is poised to benefit Orange County through the generation of tax revenue, the creation of job opportunities, and contributions to local community organizations. Once operational, Sunfish Solar is projected to offset approximately 113,290 metric tons of carbon dioxide emissions annually – equivalent to the carbon sequestered by 123,340 acres of U.S. Forest or 65.7% of Shenandoah National Park.
