Rockville-based Standard Solar on Wednesday announced the acquisition of a 12-megawatt community solar project portfolio from New Leaf Energy, the company’s debut in Virginia’s community solar market.
The three projects, one in Chatham and two in Kilmarnock, Virginia, are transforming the state’s energy landscape. The Kilmarnock projects, with a combined capacity exceeding 7 megawatts, are exclusively allocated to low- and moderate-income customers.
Once completed, the single-axis tracker systems are expected to generate an estimated 19,811 megawatt-hours (MWh) of clean energy annually.
Standard Solar, a Brookfield Renewable company, owns and operates more than 300 megawatts of solar across the United States.
