The company applied for the permit on Aug. 18, citing legislation passed in 2020 to encourage the development of solar power in the Mountain State. It said at the time the site would be on 304 acres of pasture fields and land consisting of moderate and steep hills.

 The production array will consist of 226,356 solar panels. The energy produced will be sent through an existing power line to Appalachian Power Company and the regional electrical network of which West Virginia is a member, according to the application.

In making its application, New Haven PV I stressed the economic development advantages for the county at the mouth of the Kanawha River, including a company investment of $97 million and the creation of 319 construction jobs.

“The Commission recognizes the importance of all forms of energy development in West Virginia,” PSC Chairman Charlotte Lane said. “We welcome this new project.”
