July 2016, SolUnesco secured site control of 758 acres. The design for the site layout utilizes approximately 400 acres of the 758 acres.
In December of 2016, SolUnesco sold the project rights to Brookfield and executed a Development Services Agreement. SolUnesco retains day-to-day project development responsibilities including landowner relations, community relations, site diligence, local permitting, support of the interconnection process, and support for commercial offtake agreements.
The project will interconnect to a 115kV Dominion owned transmission line. SolUnesco entered Meherrin into the PJM queue with positions AB1-173, AB1-173A & AB1-031 for an aggregate capacity of 60MWac. Once complete this project will provide power to the wholesale electricity grid and either sell directly to a large customer, the utility, or the utility may purchase the project adding this competitive, fixed priced power to their portfolio of power generation.
This project has achieved full site control, both for the project property and for a transmission easement through neighboring property.
