Work Session Meeting
Kentuck solar farm metering and billing-American Municipal Power
Work Session: 08/09/2018
The City of Danville currently receives the six megawatts of electric generation produced by the Kentuck Solar farm. The solar farm is owned and operated by Washington Gas and Light and has been in operation since March 19, 2018. From a financial perspective, staff would like City Council's approval to have American Municipal Power (AMP) meter this generation resource and bill the City for the energy and capacity produced. AMP currently provides this service for both projects they own and other non-AMP generation projects that their members are participants in.
In May 2016, the City of Danville entered into a twenty-five year agreement with Washington Gas and Light for six megawatts of solar generation at Kentuck solar farm located in Ringgold, Virginia. The City took receipt of the electric generation starting on March 19, 2018. This generation resource will provide local energy and save on transmission and capacity charges.
Staff recommends that City Council authorize the City Manager to enter into American Municipal Power's (AMP) Agency Designation Agreement, which will allow AMP to manage the revenue meter associated with the Kentuck solar farm, and bill the City for any electric generation produced at the facility.
