Dominion subsidiary Dominion Virginia Power and Standard Solar have completed the largest single rooftop array in Virginia -- a 1 MW (dc) solar array at Western Branch High School in Chesapeake, Va.
3,000+ panel array’s output will exceed 1,330 MWh/year and offset 918 metric tons of carbon
When solar manufacturer Solyndra went belly up in 2011, it led to a full-blown Washington scandal, with congressional hearings and accusations of White House wrongdoing. Solyndra became a one-word expletive that tagged the young solar industry as a boondoggle.
Western Branch High School, along with Dominion Power, cut the ribbon on a brand-new rooftop solar energy system on Wednesday.
Melwood partnered with Standard Solar to build a 413.8 kW rooftop system on its Horticulture Training Center, along with a 517.1 kW carport system (930 kW total), which will provide 95 percent of the center’s energy needs.
