The renewables unit of French utility EDF (EPA: EDF) said that this action stands for the initial phase of projects in ODEC's member solution regions in Virginia and also Delaware. The full portfolio capacity will add approximately 50 MW to a number of ODEC member areas.

Both events became part of an agreement in 2019 to establish solar projects at potential sites across ODEC's 11 retail distribution participating members. ODEC will certainly be the off-taker of the solar output via fixed-rate power purchase agreements (PPAs).

More details on the projects are available in the table below.

Monroe Solar Mecklenburg Electric Cooperative 2.8
