Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe says a new 20-megawatt solar facility will be built in Northampton County.

 

RICHMOND, Va. (AP) — Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe says a new 20-megawatt solar facility will be built in Northampton County.

The Democratic governor says once the utility-scale facility in Cape Charles is completed, it will produce enough energy to power more than 3,000 homes in the area.

The governor's office says Hecate Energy LLC received a permit for the 185-acre "Cherrydale Project" on Wednesday.

McAuliffe, who has pushed for investments in renewable energy to cut carbon emissions, says the project is a "significant step forward for the Eastern Shore."
