In 2017, DGS, in partnership with DOEE, contracted GRID Alternatives Mid-Atlantic to design and build a community solar energy system on a degraded 15-acre brownfield along South Capitol Street, SW in Ward 8. GRID is providing project management for site civil engineering, environmental, and survey services for the Oxon Run Community Solar project, a 2.65-megawatt clean energy farm.
The project team is aiming to develop an innovative, low-impact site design that safely, cleanly and silently produces renewable electricity. The project is slated to come on line in fall 2019 and is expected to produce enough electricity to offset $500 annually for an estimated 750 households within the surrounding community.
