Dominion Energy Virginia seeks up to 500 MW of solar bids
Aug 6, 2019 06:40 PM ET
Dominion Energy Virginia is seeking bids for up to 500 megawatts of solar generation in both 2021 and 2022 to continue moving the Commonwealth toward a clean energy future.
Dominion Energy is committed to having 3,000 megawatts of solar and wind in operation or under development in Virginia by 2022. The company owns the fourth-largest solar portfolio of any United States utility and is committed to reducing carbon emissions by 80% by 2050 across the 18 states it serves. The ambitious goals will be achieved in part by an increased reliance on solar and wind projects.
The Solar RFP is soliciting bids for energy, capacity and environmental attributes including Renewable Energy Certificates, for new solar facilities at least 5 MWAC in size. The facilities must be located in Virginia to be considered.
The proposals can be for power purchase agreements and/or the purchase of development projects. The RFP outlines the proposal requirements and power and asset purchase agreement terms requiring a commercial operations date in 2021 and 2022, as well as the price and non-price evaluation criteria.
Notices of Intent to Bid and Confidentiality Agreements are due by Aug. 15, 2019 with final asset purchase and power purchase proposals due Oct. 3, 2019 and Jan. 16, 2020, respectively.
