New River Valley Regional Jail
Baker Renewable Energy installed the largest solar thermal system in Virginia at the New River Valley Regional Jail. This state-of-the-art, ground mount system consists of 138 collectors, the equivalence of 272 kW of photovoltaic energy. The structure will offset approximately 30 percent of the jail’s natural gas usage, and will provide 2.5 million gallons of hot water per year to the facility. It is one of the largest ground mount solar thermal projects in the Southeastern United States.
New River Valley Regional Jail is a 296,000-square-foot facility located in the Dublin Industrial Park in Dublin, Va. Baker Renewable Energy worked in conjunction with Virginia-based Thompson & Litton, an award-winning engineering, architectural, surveying and construction administration firm, to design a custom solution for NRVRJ.
