RFP Alert: Dominion Energy Virginia seeking up to 1.2 GW of new solar

Dominion Energy

Dominion Energy Virginia (DEV) is soliciting proposals for up to 1.2 GW of new solar and onshore wind development assets, as well as approximately 125 MW of energy storage. Dominion is changing things up from past annual RFPs. The company will now accept acquisition proposals on a continuous basis throughout the year for more flexibility and better transparency.

The company is interested in proposals for five categories of development assets:

  • new photovoltaic (“PV”) solar nameplate capacity
  • new PV solar generation paired with energy storage nameplate capacity
  • new onshore wind nameplate capacity
  • new onshore wind paired with energy storage nameplate capacity
  • new stand-alone energy storage nameplate capacity

For solar proposals, the company is seeking both utility-scale projects that are greater than 3 MW, as well as distributed projects that are 3 MW or less.

For all proposals, the company will only consider facilities located in Virginia. Specifically, for distributed projects that are 3 MW or less, the facilities must be located within DEV’s service territory where there are location grid benefits to DEV customers.

All participating Bidders must register in the RFP by submitting an Intent to Bid Form and an executed Confidentiality Agreement (CA). The Intent to Bid Form, CA and other additional information on this RFP can be found on the company’s website. The completed form and signed CA should be emailed to DEVCleanEnergyRFP-Acquisition@dominionenergy.com.

The company will host an informational webinar for interested bidders at 1 p.m. ET on June 9, 2022. A separate RFP seeking proposals for Power Purchase Agreements (PPA) will be issued on September 1, 2022.
