A new rooftop solar panel will be installed at the Virginia Department of Forestry’s (VDOF) headquarters in Charlottesville.
Governor Northam made the installation announcement on Thursday during a ribbon cutting ceremony for the project.
The new 120 kilowatt rooftop solar facility is expected to offset 16 percent of building’s energy needs.
This project is one of five state agency projects that have received support through Virginia’s lead-by-example solar initiative.
The installation was funded using remaining dollars received from the U.S. Department of Energy under President Obama’s American Recovery and Reinvestment Act.
