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. 

We anticipate that more than half of land within this geographic area will be open space, not occupied by solar facilities.

Project Size

An estimated 6,000 acres will be developed and fenced in for solar equipment. The Project currently has site control over approximately 15,000 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 $600 million+ facility is expected to begin Q3 / Q2023. 

Electricity Generated

500 MW.ac is enough to power more than 130,000 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 the owner of the project and provides day-to-day project development, 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 12 projects currently under development, SolUnesco has contributed over 1,400 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.
