Dominion Power reports that three solar-energy projects will become operational by the end of 2016. These are expected to deliver 56 megawatts at peak power to the regional grid. Details are on Virginia Business’s website.
Dominion’s projects are Woodland Solar in Isle of Wight County, Whitehouse Solar in Louisa County and Scott Solar in Powhatan County. At peak power, the combined output of the installations could furnish power equivalent to that required by 14,000 homes.
We applaud these efforts of Dominion, as well as others both private and public, that are increasing the contributions of solar and other renewable energy sources to the state and mid-Atlantic region. If you have any questions about these projects or issues in renewable energy capacity and regulation, call one of our Virginia energy lawyers.
