Governor Ralph Northam is making a stop in Christiansburg today.
He’ll be at the Carilion New River Valley Medical Center for the unveiling of the hospital’s solar array.
The array also features a backup system that is the first of it’s kind for a Virginia hospital.
This unveiling marks the first time a hospital in the commonwealth can use clean energy for backup power in case of a blackout.
After that, Governor Northam heads to Roanoke for the grand opening of the Virginia Career Works Center on Thirlane Road.
