Norfolk Botanical Garden Solar Site

October 1 @ 12:00 pm - 4:00 pm - October 1 @ 12:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Norfolk Botanical Garden is committed to environmental stewardship and leading through environmental action. As part of this endeavor, 120 solar panels were installed on the roof of our largest storage building in August 2018, This 39.6 kW system is located across from the greenhouse and offsets 84% of the greenhouse’s energy needs.

In August 2022, installation of a 212.400 kW system commenced on the roof of the Baker Hall Visitor Center/Education Building. Comprised of 472 panels, this system is expected to offset 83% of that building’s energy needs.

Along with solar panels, the Garden is 100% invested in the Dominion Energy Green Power program and provides two electric vehicle charging stations in the Administration Building parking lot.

Our 175 acres of beautiful landscape serve as a thriving habitat for local wildlife as native plants are prominently featured in our natural areas and numerous themed gardens.

Garden admission is required to visit our solar site. Please see our website to purchase tickets: https://norfolkbotanicalgarden.org/visit/
