15 solar projects approved for Dominion Energy Virginia customers
This past Tuesday, the Virginia State Corporation Commission (SCC) approved a significant expansion of new solar and energy storage projects for Dominion Energy Virginia customers. Once operational, the projects will provide nearly 1,000 MW of carbon-free electricity, enough to power about 250,000 Virginia homes at peak output.
The approved expansion includes 15 Dominion Energy Virginia projects, as well as PPAs with 24 other projects owned by third-party developers. The projects will help advance Dominion Energy’s path to net zero greenhouse gas emissions and meet the future energy needs of its customers.
“This is another significant milestone in Virginia’s transition to energy independence,” said Ed Baine, president of Dominion Energy Virginia. “These projects will support thousands of good jobs and hundreds of millions in economic activity in communities across Virginia. This is a positive step forward for our customers, the environment and Virginia’s economy.”
Over $880 million in economic benefits are expected to be generated in Virginia as a result of the 15 Dominion Energy Virginia projects, supporting nearly 4,200 jobs. The projects are expected to be completed in 2022 and 2023 and will add approximately $1.13 to the typical residential customers’ monthly bill.
