Solar power

RICHMOND, Va. (AP) - Dominion Virginia Power (NYSE: D) says it's filed an application with state regulators to build the state's first large-scale solar project.

The filing Tuesday outlines plans for a 20-megawatt solar array on 125 acres near the Remington Power Station in Fauquier County.

The power project would contain approximately 90,000 photovoltaic panels. At peak capacity, it would generate enough power for 5,000 homes. Its estimated in-service date is October 2016.

In a statement, Gov. Terry McAuliffe said the project would nearly double Virginia's production of solar energy.
