Pivot Energy Partners With Clean Footprint to Bring 42 Megawatts of Solar Energy to Virginia
By Pivot EnergyOctober 20 2021
Pivot Energy and Clean Footprint are pleased to announce their partnership to bring 42 megawatts (MW) of solar energy capacity to 11 projects across Virginia. The projects are expected to serve households, municipal buildings, and local businesses with clean, renewable electricity for many years to come.
While Virginia may rank 11th nationally in terms of installed solar capacity, growth has largely come from utility-scale projects across the state. However, the Virginia Clean Economy Act, which passed the legislature in March 2020, will jump-start over 16 gigawatts of new solar development, including new distributed generation and community solar.
The neighboring towns of Hurt and Altavista are among the first in the state to experience direct benefits of new solar development through the partnership between Pivot Energy and Clean Footprint as they will host the initial eight solar projects. Local leaders in both communities eagerly anticipate the wide range of possibilities renewable energy will bring to their communities, including new jobs and guaranteed land lease revenue for decades to come.
Pivot Energy is a national solar provider that develops, finances, builds, owns, and manages solar and energy storage projects. Pivot offers a distributed energy platform that includes a range of services and software aimed at serving the full solar ecosystem.
