John Hopkins Inks Deal for 13 MW of Solar Power
The John Hopkins Health System Corporation (JHHS) signed an agreement Sept. 15 for 13 MW of renewable energy from a Virginia solar project.
The education and research institution completed the deal with Energix, facilitated by LevelTen Energy. JHHS will receive electricity through the agreement from the Hollyfield II project in King William County, Va., which began operations in July.
The full Hollyfield II project is expected to avoid 18,743 tons of greenhouse gas emissions each year through the clean energy it generates.
This is JHHS’s second investment in solar energy, following a deal in 2016 for 13.6 MW of solar energy from a project in Maryland.
“We applaud Johns Hopkins Health System for its commitment to sustainability and powering its operations with renewable energy,” Ryan Warren, chief commercial officer of LevelTen Energy, said in a statement. “This deal proves that power purchase agreements are no longer limited to large technology companies; thanks to the LevelTen Energy Marketplace, organizations with lower energy demands can now quickly find a PPA that meets their needs.”
