 Dominion, Microsoft Partner to Bring New Solar Project to Virginia

A partnership between the Commonwealth of Virginia, Microsoft and Dominion Virginia Power is bringing a new 20-MW solar facility to the state.

Dominion will build the facility on company-owned land in Fauquier County adjacent to its Remington generating station.

“This partnership will help lower carbon emissions in Virginia and diversify our energy portfolio, while growing the solar and data center industries in Virginia,” said Gov. Terry McAuliffe.

Subject to regulatory approval, the project is expected online in late 2017.

Dominion has committed to bring 400 MW of solar to Virginia by 2020.
