Deforestation Underway in Virginia to Build Solar Farms

There are now over 240 projects underway and a planned installation of over 60 million solar panels in accordance with the “Virginia Green New Deal.” Last fall, Dominion Energy stated that to meet the Virginia Clean Economy Act (VCEA) mandates, they project that 490 square miles of forests and farmland will be destroyed to fulfill the VCEA solar power plans. This means our beautiful Virginia landscape will be covered with millions of solar panels.

Democrats are forcing Virginia into their “Green New Deal” to clean up air quality, but are ignoring the long term effects of massive deforestation.
