"Metro is offering a 15-year solar ground lease to develop and operate solar photovoltaic (PV) power systems on surface and rooftop parking lots at Anacostia, Cheverly, Naylor Road and Southern Avenue stations," a statement read.
The panels will be owned, operated and maintained by a third-party solar energy provider.
