Dominion Subsidiary Files for Approval of 3 New Large-Scale Solar Projects in Virginia

A Dominion Resources subsidiary is looking to bring 56 MW of new solar energy online by the end of 2016.

Dominion Virginia Power has filed for approval with the State Corporation Commission on three large-scale solar projects in Powhatan, Louisa and Isle of Wight counties.

If approved, construction begins in spring 2016 on the following:

  • Scott Solar, which Dominion intends to purchase from Virginia Solar, will be constructed on 165 acres in Powhatan County and will produce about 17 MW.
  • Whitehouse Solar, slated for 250 acres in Louisa County, is expected to generate about 20 MW.
  • Woodland Solar, which Dominion plans to buy from Coronal Development Services, is planned for a 200-acre site in Wight County and will produce 19 MW.

The $129.5 million proposal is the result of the company’s July Request for Proposals, which also prompted Dominion to pursue power purchase agreements with other solar developers.

With a portfolio of about 20,400 MW of generation, Dominion serves utility and retail energy customers in 13 states.
