SunEnergy1 has notified the Department of Environmental Quality of its intent to submit the necessary documentation for a permit by rule (PBR) for the construction of a small renewable energy project (solar) in Mechanicsville, Virginia, pursuant to 9VAC15-60 of the Virginia Administrative Code.  This 20 MW AC project will be a ground-mounted solar photovoltaic facility utilizing a single-axis tracking system and comprised of approximately 93,000 solar modules. The facility will be constructed on approximately 250 acres located approximately at 3028 Mechanicsville Turnpike, Mechanicsville, Virginia, GPS point 37.667591 & -77.197951, in Hanover County. The site is zoned A-l Agricultural and rezoning will not be required; however, Hanover County will require the issuance of a Conditional Use Permit for which an application is in process.
