On display at this week’s virtual & free Virginia Solar Summit, Virginia is blazing a bright trail towards supercharged land-based solar energy redevelopment.
As a new day for energy development dawns across the planet, the State of Virginia is stepping into a powerful leadership role with perhaps the nation’s most constructive policy for renewable energy redevelopment on coal fields, brownfields and other mined lands idled by impacts from prior use. Paving a bright, clear pathway for private industry to approach these riskier, costlier sites, Virginia’s supportive policy environment will help put more solar power production projects on real property with no other economically viable purpose.
Spotlight topics at this year’s Virginia Solar Summit include (1) mine land redevelopment and, (2) pollinator habitat restoration, showcasing how solar redevelopment can be the nexus between economic revitalization and environmental restoration simultaneously.
Plug into Greater Virginia’s burgeoning ground-mounted solar power boom during this week’s brilliant, robust and FREE 3-day Virginia Solar Summit March 16, 17 & 18. This fast-paced, knowledge-rich online event will assemble the deepest bench of solar development and “brightfield” redevelopment experts on the planet to provide unparalleled educational opportunities at any price. Novices and experts alike will enjoy an illuminating program that progresses from the ABC’s of solar development and basic policy to the most sophisticated technology and practice deployed on the most challenging sites.
The power-packed solar power experience will also expose you to bleeding-edge brightfield redevelopment practice and professionals walk through each step of the project development pathway. Expect to takeaway actionable information and guidance relevant to ground-mounted solar projects in Greater Virginia and beyond, as well as the latest resources available for land-based solar energy development, including those prepared by state and federal government agencies, e.g. Virginia DEQ, Virginia DMMA, U.S. EPA, U.S. DOE, NREL and more, in the official event Knowledge Binder.
