Summary (Project Description from Narrative)

Hexagon Energy is pleased to apply for a Special Use Permit for Sweet Spring Solar (the Project), a
small, solar photovoltaic (PV) facility of approximately one (1) megawatt (MW) in capacity, measured in
alternating-current (AC). The Project will be located at Parcel Record Number (PRN) 10945 (the
Property), to south of Route 20 / Constitution Highway, and off of Porter Road. The maximum extents of
the Project will encompass up to approximately 19 acres (the Site) on a larger, 116.46-acre property,
located in the Agricultural (A) zoning district. The project has been designed in full compliance with
Orange County and Virginia permitting and approval requirements.

Sweet Spring Solar, LLC is both the applicant and facility owner for the Project. Sweet Spring Solar, LLC
is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Hexagon Energy, LLC (Hexagon Energy), a Virginia Limited Liability
Company. Hexagon Energy is located in Charlottesville, Virginia—with our owners and all but two of our
employees residing in Virginia.
 
Hexagon Energy is an independent, privately owned energy development firm that believes the path to a
clean energy future requires a range of new sources and technologies. We develop projects across six
diverse energy solutions with one common goal—powering a clean future.

Over the past 19 years, Hexagon Energy’s principals have played a central role in building the
renewable energy industry in Virginia and bringing renewable energy jobs to the Commonwealth. Our
principals have advised Dominion on 232 MW of renewable energy purchases and developed nearly
600 MW of operating solar projects across the U.S., including some of the first utility-scale projects in
Virginia. We are excited to work with Orange County to develop a locally-based solar project that benefits
Virginia communities, rate payers, and landowners.
