Tobacco Valley Solar

Simsbury, CT

Rooted in Connecticut farmland, with over 170,000 solar panels, Tobacco Valley Solar will provide enough energy to power 5,000 homes. VHB’s ability to navigate the ever-changing design and permitting landscape, along with its deep environmental knowledge and strong relationship with regulatory agencies led to a unanimous approval for the construction of the largest ground-mounted solar facility ever approved in the State at the time.
