Developers have filed notices of intent with the Virginia Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ) for three different solar power projects during recent weeks.
Here’s a rundown of small renewable energy project notices filed with the DEQ since June 16:
- Sappony Solar LLC filed a notice of intent for a small renewable energy project with DEQ on June 16, saying it planned to develop a maximum 20-MW solar project in Sussex County, Virginia. “The solar project conceptually consists of 88,209 x 320-watt panels plus 9 x 2.5-megawatt inverters which will provide a maximum 20 MWs of nameplate capacity,” according to the notice, which says Sappony will soon be filing the necessary documents for a “permit by rule.”

Twittys Creek said its project would be located in Charlotte County and have a maximum capacity of 15 MW. “The array will utilize approximately 65,100 ground mounted photovoltaic solar modules, or equivalent; feeding into 6 2.5MW inverters, or equivalent, before interconnection.”
- Scott-II Solar LLC filed a notice with DEQ on June 16 for a solar project in Powhatan County. The project will be located on a portion of a 720-acre property and have a maximum capacity of 20 MW. “The solar project conceptually consists of 88,209 x 320-watt panels plus 10 x 2.2-megawatt inverters which will provide a maximum 20 MWs of nameplate capacity,” according to the notice.
