Dominion unveils 800MW Virginia solar, storage surge

Dominion Energy Virginia has proposed nearly two dozen new solar and energy storage projects for Virginia customers.

If approved, the projects will provide more than 800MW of carbon-free electricity, enough to power more than 200,000 Virginia homes at peak output.

These include 10 solar and energy storage projects, totalling nearly 500MW, that will be owned and operated by Dominion Energy Virginia. The proposal also includes power purchase agreements (PPAs) with 13 solar and energy storage projects, totalling more than 300MW, that are owned by independent developers.

The PPAs were selected through a competitive solicitation process.

The company made the proposals in its third annual clean energy filing with the Virginia State Corporation Commission (SCC).

Construction of the projects is projected to support nearly 4,800 clean energy jobs and will generate more than $920 million in economic benefits across Virginia.

If approved, the projects are expected to be completed between 2023 and 2025, and will add approximately $0.38 to the average residential customer's monthly bill.

"These projects are another big step in delivering clean, affordable and reliable energy to our customers," said Ed Baine, President of Dominion Energy Virginia. "The clean energy transition is bringing jobs and economic opportunity to communities across Virginia, and it's reducing fuel costs for our customers. That's a win-win for our customers and the communities we serve."
