Virginia forestry department HQ gets new solar panels

CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (AP) — Virginia’s forestry department has put up new solar panels on its headquarters as part of an effort to provide cleaner energy to state buildings.

Gov. Ralph Northam announced the 120 kilowatt project at a ribbon cutting ceremony Thursday.

The Virginia Department of Mines, Minerals and Energy is working with state agencies to install more solar projects in state buildings.

The installation at the forestry building was funded by money previously received from the U.S. Department of Energy during the Obama administration. A local company, Sun Tribe Solar, installed the solar panel system.
