Spring Grove Solar in Surry County, Virginia

A Planned Solar Project

in Surry County, Virginia

Spring Grove II Solar is a 150 MW solar project planned in Surry County, Virginia.

Spring Grove II is an expansion of Urban Grid’s development portfolio in Surry County, Virginia which began in 2017 with Colonial Trail West (142 MW) and Spring Grove I (98 MW). These two solar energy projects were developed by Urban Grid and built, owned and are now operated by Dominion Energy. Today, as an Independent Power Producer, Urban Grid has not only developed Spring Grove II, but we will also construct it and fully own and operate the facility for decades to come.

Benefits

What does this project mean for you and your community?

LOCAL ECONOMIC IMPACT

Over its lifetime, Spring Grove II Solar will pay millions of dollars in tax revenues to Surry County. That's 35 years of guaranteed revenue from a project that does not require costly infrastructure or public services, increase traffic or impact prime farmland. Further, during construction, the project will employ hundreds of local workers with good-paying jobs, while boosting area businesses and service providers.

LOCALLY GENERATED CLEAN ENERGY

Home-grown solar is vital to bolstering grid resilience in Surry County and enables Virginia to meet its goal to produce its electricity from 100 percent 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

Spring Grove II Solar has been engineered to minimize disturbances to wetlands, streams, and other environmentally sensitive areas on the project site. During the life of Spring Grove II Solar, wildlife corridors, pollinators, sheep grazing, and other habitat-nurturing features will enable nature to continue to thrive, optimizing our mission as stewards of the land.
