Dominion Energy filed a proposal with the Virginia State Corporation Commission for these projects in October 2023, in addition to 8MW projects in Brunswick County and Hanover County.

In addition to these projects, the portfolio will also include 13 power purchase agreements (PPAs) with independently owned solar projects, totalling 435MW.

The projects are expected to be completed by 2026. After completion, the capacity of Dominion Energy’s approved projects in Virginia will be more than 4,600MW.

Last year, Dominion Energy also received approval from the Virginia State Corporation Commission (SCC) for two dozen new solar and energy storage projects with a combined capacity of 800MW. Of the projects approved by the SCC, nine solar projects and an energy storage project – with a combined capacity of 500MW – will be owned and operated by Dominion Energy Virginia.

PV Tech publisher Solar Media will be organising the third edition of Large Scale Solar USA Summit in Austin, Texas 1-2 May. With the Inflation Reduction Act (IRA) targeting US$369 billion for clean energy and US$40 billion for manufacturing, the solar industry has never been brighter. The IRA, securing financing for future projects or supply chain bottlenecks will be among the discussions at this year’s event.
