But the proposal first has to meet several requirements.The 500-megawatt solar facility would be built in phases, eventually taking up a total of about 3,500 acres on the 6,000-plus-acre site.More: Largest solar farm in Virginia clears important hurdle Virginia regulators okay 1.8-million-panel solar PV facility
