About Axton Solar

Axton Solar is a 200-megawatt (MW) project being developed by Vesper Energy. The project will consist of ground-mounted solar panels installed on approximately 1,100 acres of privately-owned land in eastern Henry County and approximately 1,423 acres in western Pittsylvania County.

The project will generate enough clean, renewable energy to power more than 20,000 Virginia homes, and will benefit the local, regional and state economy through short- and long-term employment opportunities as well as by creating a new, reliable long-term source of tax revenue for each county.

Axton Solar will help the Commonwealth meet the Virginia Clean Economy Act, which requires the state’s electricity sector to be 100 percent carbon free by 2050.


The project is being developed by Vesper Energy (formerly Lendlease Energy Development), a renewable energy company that partners with local landowners to develop and operate solar and energy storage projects across the country.

The Vesper team has successfully commercialized more than 680 MW of renewable energy projects in the U.S. and is currently developing similar projects in other states. Learn more about Vesper Energy at
