What does this project mean for you and your community?
LOCAL ECONOMIC IMPACT
Over its lifetime, Crystal HIll Solar will pay millions of dollars in tax revenues to Halifax County–revenue from a project that does not require costly infrastructure, public services or increase traffic. In addition, roughly 220 - 250 workers will be employed during peak construction of the project while boosting area businesses and service providers.
LOCALLY GENERATED CLEAN ENERGY
Home-grown solar is vital to reducing America's dependence on foreign oil and enables Virginia to meet its goal to produce its electricity from 100% renewable sources by 2050. The transition to clean energy is powered by strong communities whose landowners, local businesses, and citizens recognize their critical role in making it happen.
Land Restoration and protection
The facility design has been engineered to minimize disturbances to wetlands, streams, and other environmentally sensitive areas located within the property. Native pollinator species will be planted along perimeter buffers and throughout the site, encouraging natural habitat and wildlife in the area.
