    AES’ Augusta Solar project is a proposed solar facility in Augusta County, Virginia. As the long-term owner and operator, AES is committed to responsible clean energy development that creates long-term positive impact for both the environment and local communities. The Augusta Solar project will incorporate the most advanced solar energy technologies to support the Commonwealth’s goal to transition its electric grid to 100% clean energy by 2050.
