On October 20, 2016, Eric Hurlocker and Blair Powell, together with numerous state and local officials, attended the ribbon-cutting ceremony at Monticello High School in Charlottesville, Virginia commemorating new solar panel installations developed by our long-standing client, Secure Futures. Six public schools in Albemarle County now receive a portion of its energy from rooftop solar, totaling 1.1 megawatts of renewable energy, which will meet approximately 22% of the schools’ electricity needs. This project makes Albemarle County Public Schools the first public school district in Virginia to purchase solar energy using a Power Purchase Agreement under Dominion’s Renewable Energy Pilot Program. Governor Terry McAuliffe presided over the ribbon-cutting ceremony and provided an update on his energy plan for the Commonwealth of Virginia.
