Midway Solar Center PBR Notice

About the Project

The Midway Solar Project is an 8MW AC solar energy facility paired with a 4MW AC battery storage system located in the Albemarle County, 1.3 miles south/southwest of Batesville, Virginia.

The project site consists of a mix of planted timber pine forest and open agricultural field. Approximately 80 acres (of a 136-acre parcel) will be required to construct the facility. The area under the solar panels will consist mostly of planted vegetation, allowing rainwater to pass around and under panels much as it would in its current, natural condition.

The project will interconnect to the Central Virginia Electric Cooperative power grid via existing 34.5kV overhead lines at a point on the southern portion of the site. No offsite construction of transmission or distribution infrastructure is expected to be required.

Solar facilities are temporary. When the Midway Solar Center reaches the end of its use, all of its components will be removed and recycled and the land returned to its pre-solar condition.
