“The closing of the sale of Atlanta Farms Solar Project to Dominion Energy marks another important milestone in the continued advancement and momentum of solar energy growth for the state of Ohio. Savion is proud to be developing solar power facilities in the great state of Ohio and helping to contribute to the decarbonization efforts of our partners,” said Nick Lincon, president for Savion.
Lincon says projects like Atlanta Farms Solar Project would not be possible without the support of the local communities, officials, landowners, and project partners.
Savion currently manages an energy project portfolio in Ohio with more than 3,400 MW of solar and energy storage projects contracted, under construction, in operation, or in the active development pipeline.
“We want to thank the Dominion Energy team for their efforts and dedication to complete the Atlanta Farms Solar Project sale transaction,” said Jeff James, senior vice president of commercial transactions for Savion. “This represents the third Savion-developed solar project purchased by Dominion Energy in the past three years. We appreciate their continued trust in the Savion team and look forward to many more successful collaborations.”
Once built, Atlanta Farms Solar Project will produce enough to power the equivalent of approximately 41,500 average Ohio homes. Nearly 500 local jobs will be created during the construction phase, and an estimated $48 million in local tax revenue will be generated over the project’s 30-year life.
In 2019, Dominion Energy completed a transaction to acquire two Savion-developed Virginia solar facilities, the 15 MWac TWE Myrtle Solar Project and the 80 MWac Greensville County Solar Project.
Have you checked out our YouTube page?
We have a ton video interviews and additional content on our YouTube page. Recently we debuted Power Forward! -- a collaboration with BayWa r.e. to discuss higher level industry topics as well as best practices / trends for running a solar business today.
Our longer running side project is The Pitch -- in which we have awkward discussions with solar manufacturers and suppliers about their new technology and ideas so that you don't have to. We've discusses everything from residential rail-less deck attaching and home solar financing to large-scale energy storage value stacking and utility-driven new home solar + storage microgrids.
We also post our Project of the Year announcements there! Interviews with this year's winners will be up starting the week of Nov. 8. Head there and subscribe today to stay on top of all this extra stuff.
