20-Megawatt Solar Project to be Built in Northampton County

Posted: Updated:

RICHMOND, Va. (AP)- Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe says a new 20-megawatt solar facility will be built in Northampton County.
    
The Democratic governor says once the utility-scale facility in Cape Charles is completed, it will produce enough energy to power more than 3,000 homes in the area.
    
The governor's office says Hecate Energy LLC received a permit for the 185-acre "Cherrydale Project" on Wednesday.
    
McAuliffe, who has pushed for investments in renewable energy to cut carbon emissions, says the project is a "significant step forward for the Eastern Shore."
