We saw the recent news that Dominion Virginia Power’s Isle of Wight solar array project delivered on time. The Woodland Solar development (19 MW) becomes one of the largest of its kind in the state. In December, Dominion brought three projects on line, including Woodland.
While Virginia continues to lag behind other states in solar energy development, we’ve noted that this year the General Assembly may be poised to try and change that by putting into law some better incentives for producers and developers. We applaud Dominion for its commitment to integrating renewable sources into its power grid, and we are hopeful that other energy companies will also bring their investment to the state. It will take a diverse group of providers to effectively increase our use of solar power in the Commonwealth.
If you have questions about renewable energy and solar power development or need more information on the Dominion projects, please contact one of our Virginia energy lawyers.
