Cypress Creek Renewables has sold the 63MW Madison Solar project in Orange County, Virginia, to Dominion Energy.
The solar project, which was developed by Cypress Creek and will be owned and operated by Dominion Generation, a subsidiary of Dominion Energy, is expected to break ground in early 2021.
Falls Church-based Northrop Grumman Corporation anticipates that the facility, under long-term agreements, will provide enough renewable power to the grid to match 100 percent of its Virginia manufacturing and office operations’ electricity use.
“Our mission of powering a sustainable future one project at a time drives us to create valuable partnerships and projects. Our collaboration with Dominion and Northrop Grumman on the Madison project reinforces our commitment to developing solar in the nation’s largest wholesale electricity market, PJM, and delivering long-term benefits for Orange County, Virginia.”Cassidy DeLine, vice president of Project Finance, Cypress Creek Renewables.
“We have a long-standing commitment to environmental sustainability and greenhouse gas emissions reductions. As we look beyond our 2020 goals, this project will play an important role in the next generation of our climate-related commitments.”Sandra Evers-Manly, vice president of global corporate responsibility, Northrop Grumman.
