Dominion Energy has acquired a 72MW PV project from First Solar that is expected to enter service in late 2019. The installation will provide power and renewable energy attributes under a Dominion Energy South Carolina contract that was previously filed and accepted in South Carolina.

Construction has already started on the project, which will be located on 254 hectares of land in Beaufort County, South Carolina. Once the Seabrook Solar project is completed, it will be one of the largest solar arrays in the Palmetto State. 

Keller Kissam, president of electric operations at Dominion Energy, said: “South Carolina, through the General Assembly and Governor McMaster, has expressed an interest in the benefits of renewable energy. Dominion Energy South Carolina already has 500MW of utility-scale solar projects that are operating in our service area. 

“We are excited to add to our supply of low-cost, clean energy with this post-merger solar project in South Carolina. We look forward to continuing our work with developers to collaboratively and cost-effectively create a lower-carbon future for our state.”

Dominion Energy South Carolina, which serves 739,000 electric customer accounts primarily in the Midlands and Low Country of the state, has already signed contracts for more than 1GW of PV capacity. About half of that capacity has already entered service.
