Microsoft joins renewable energy partnership to bring more solar energy to grid in Virginia

Mar 16, 2016   |   Tracy Ith

An innovative public-private deal will bring 20 megawatts of new solar energy onto the grid in Virginia as part of Microsoft’s ongoing commitment to carbon neutrality.

The project — a partnership between Microsoft, the commonwealth of Virginia and Dominion Virginia Power —will support the growth of renewable energy in Virginia while allowing Microsoft to claim the green attributes of a brand new solar project constructed by Dominion.

Microsoft will then retire these green attributes to maximize the positive environmental impact overall.
