Dominion Seeks 1GW In Virginia

Dominion Energy is seeking proposals for 1GW of new solar and onshore wind projects in Virginia.

The US company issued the call as part of its drive to support Virginia’s Clean Economy Act and achieve its goal of reaching net-zero emissions by 2050.

The company says it will either purchase or enter into power purchase agreements with the chosen projects, which must be located in Virginia and have a generating capacity greater than 3MW.

Dominion is already developing what it claims is the largest offshore wind project in the US off the coast of Virginia and has a 5.2GW portfolio of solar farms in the state.

Plans for energy storage projects over 10MW are also being sought.

President of Dominion in Virginia Ed Baine said: “The proposals we’re seeking today are another major step forward.

“They will bring more clean energy to our customers, more small-scale projects to our communities and more clean energy jobs to our economy.”
