Randolph Solar Project

The Randolph Solar Project is a 800 MW.ac photovoltaic solar project proposed in Charlotte County, VA.

Location

Generally located south of Saxe, east of Randolph, and west of Wylliesburg. 

Within the Project’s Footprint, 75-80% of the acres will be outside of any of the Project’s fenced-in solar equipment.

Project Size

An estimated 5,800 acres will be developed and fenced in for solar equipment. The Project currently has site control over approximately 19,000 acres of land, and the developed acres will be sited within that footprint (Site due diligence and permitting conditions will determine the final layout.) Construction of this $700 million+ facility is expected to begin Q3 / Q2023. 

Electricity Generated

800 MW.ac is enough to power more than 129,600 homes. Capacity, here measured in megawatts (MW), generally refers to the maximum output (generation) of a power plant. Capacity from PV systems may be measured by either their AC or DC capacity. PV modules produce direct current (DC) voltage. This DC electricity is converted into alternating current (AC). AC rating better corresponds to traditional power plant ratings.

Developers

SolUnesco is developing the project, including site diligence, local and state permitting, design and engineering, management of the interconnection process, commercial offtake, landowner relations, and community relations.A Virginia-based solar developer with thirteen projects currently under development or construction, SolUnesco has contributed over 1,600 MWs to the state’s energy pipeline. 

Local Impact

Randolph Solar will bring tax revenue, new jobs, increased revenues to local businessesand more benefits to Charlotte County. Click here for detailed economic and environmental benefits of solar.
