Dominion Energy’s largest solar power facility will be installed in Prince George County, VA
- Dominion Energy, Inc., is creating the biggest PV plant for now. The facility will be located in Fort Powhatan, the Commonwealth of Virginia.
The 150 MW photovoltaic plant has been announced to be ready for use by 2021. It is estimated to produce electricity volume sufficient for over 50,000 houses. However, electric energy is going to be purchased by a data centre instead of being supplied to dwellings.
Which data centre is purchasing power from the solar plant is yet unknown.
Dominion Energy company already owns over 40 solar stations producing over 1,500 MW of solar power in Virginia. Some of the plants are already in use, the others are still being constructed. The fourth biggest solar complex in the country belongs to Dominion.
The company promises that 3,000 MW of renewable power will be already generated or at least in development in Virginia by 2022.
The biggest solar facility is going to bring it 45% toward the aimed volume.
About a month ago, Virginia signed the biggest purchase contract of green power by a state with Dominion.
According to contractual terms, Dominion Energy is obliged to provide the Commonwealth with solar and wind energy sufficient to cover one third of electric power consumed by public offices in 2022.
