Arlington Purchases Big Solar Power

Arlington is purchasing the power output from approximately 475 acres of solar panels. That’s over 360 football fields of solar!

This new solar electricity will go onto the grid and offset over 80% of the Arlington County government’s electricity use. Our streetlights and stoplights, fire stations, community centers, water treatment plant, Trades Center, County offices, and more.

This is a huge step towards your Arlington County government using 100% renewable electricity by 2025.

The farm may be in Pittsylvania County, but if it were in Arlington, just how big would it be?

See how the size of the new solar farm compares to the size of your civic association. Enter your address to find out (we don’t save this data).
