Racehorse Solar

  • In June of 2016, SolUnesco secured full site control of 189
    acres. The design for the site layout utilizes 89.93 acres of the 189
    acres.
  • In March of 2017, SolUnesco sold the project rights to Sol Systems and
    executed a Development Services Agreement. SolUnesco retains day-
    to-day project development responsibilities including landowner relations,
    community relations, site diligence, vendor management, local, state and
    federal permitting, support of the interconnection process, and support
    for commercial offtake agreements.
  • The project will interconnect to a 34.5kV line directly on the landowner’s
    property. In December 2016, this project submitted an application to
    interconnect to Rappahannock Electric Cooperative (REC) 34.5 kV
    distribution line (located on the property) and entered into the PJM queue
    (Position AC1-115) at 14.9MWac. 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.

Status

  • Interconnection: REC has completed its distribution interconnection
    studies and we anticipate system impact study with full interconnection
    cost estimate to be provided mid-November.
  • Local Permitting: Zoning approval is expected by Q1 2018.
  • Site Diligence: desktop analyses on the project site: 1) Virginia
    Department of Historic Resources (VDHR) cultural resources database
    search; 2) Virginia Department of Game and Inland Fisheries (VDGIF),
    Virginia Department of Conservation and Recreation (DCR), and the
    United States Fish and Wildlife Service (FWS) database searches for the
    presence of Rare, Threatened or Endangered (RTE) species within a 2-
    mile radius of the project; and 3) compile database information for
    topography, wetlands, National Hydrography Dataset, soils, etc. We
    have also completed a title search for all relevant property, along with a
    Phase 1 ESA study for the project parcels.
