AES provides site analysis, feasibility studies, site design, and surveying for solar sites throughout Virginia. Our successful rezoning efforts are supported by our in-house production of color visualizations, enhanced rendering, and animated fly-through models. AES partners with clients to transform rural and farmland into wattage-producing solar fields. Many of these efforts are in support of the Dominion Power’s Solar Purchase Program. AES is well-positioned to serve Virginia’s renewable energies sector through its core service lines of land planning, civil site design, surveying, and landscape architecture.

The image below shows a rendering of a solar site before a landscape buffer is planted and after the plantings have matured. Renderings like these allow neighbors and other stakeholders to visualize the impact of a solar site, increasing the likelihood of acceptance from all groups.
