Amazon’s renewable energy project is bringing a new solar farm to Pittsylvania County, making it the seventh Amazon Solar Farm in the Commonwealth of Virginia.
"The Solar Farm will provide 45 megawatts (MW) of clean energy and is expected to generate 100,000 megawatt-hours (MWh) of renewable energy annually,” says an Amazon press release.
The farms are apart of a renewable energy project headed by Amazon that will bring farms to the U.S. and Ireland. The exact location for the farm has not been released yet.
“I applaud Amazon for their continued investment in clean and renewable energy projects in the Commonwealth of Virginia,” said Virginia Senator Mark R. Warner. “This solar energy project in Pittsylvania County will lead to a cleaner environment and more jobs in the community.”
