Solar energy heating up in Virginia?

Please excuse the pun, but yesterday's full page ad by Dominion Energy in the Daily Press had me smiling. It seems that 900 acres on Virginia's Eastern Shore will be transformed into a mega solar energy farm in the coming months, the largest solar energy facility in Virginia so far. An 80-megawatt facility to power Amazon Web Services data centers in Northern Virginia! And expected to enter service by fall of 2016? This is indeed good news.
