Virginia to explore solar energy development near state property
Gov. Terry McAuliffe announced Thursday that VAP3 had issued a Request for Information to study whether solar energy development at, around or on top of state-owned property would make business sense and benefit the public. The RFI is seeking responses from individuals, firms and organizations with experience in solar energy development that might have interest in developing a public-private partnership project with Virginia.
“Existing state assets have great potential to generate new revenues and reduce energy costs from solar energy,” VAP3 Director J. Douglas Koelemay said in a statement. “Responses to our RFI will help unlock this potential and help us keep our facilities in a state of good repair.”
