A proposed solar array for ward 8
The Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority (WMATA) has some solar plans in the works.
Metro announced on Wednesday a proposal to install solar panels at four Metro-owned facilities in the DC area. The energy created by the panels would be enough to power 1,500 homes.
“Metro is offering a 15-year solar ground lease to develop and operate solar photovoltaic (PV) power systems on surface and rooftop parking lots at Anacostia, Cheverly, Naylor Road and Southern Avenue stations,” a statement read.
The panels will be owned, operated and maintained by a third-party solar energy provider.
