Dominion Energy Acquires Two Solar Projects in Virginia

Dominion Generation, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Dominion Energy, has acquired two solar generating projects from Savion LLC, a subsidiary of Macquarie's Green Investment Group. The facilities are expected to be operational in 2020. Power generated at the two sites, as well as the renewable energy credits, will go to telecommunications company T-Mobile Inc., under long-term contracts.

Dominion Energy  has reached 20 percent of its goal, announced in  2018, to add 3,000 MW of solar and wind generation to the electric grid in Virginia by the end of 2022. Three-thousand megawatts of electric generating capacity can serve at least 750,000 customers when the facilities are producing energy.

The company also set a target of 80 percent reduction in carbon emissions from its power generating facilities between 2005 and 2050. As of the end of 2018, Dominion Energy was more than halfway to meeting that target.

"We are proud to partner with T-Mobile to provide clean energy for its operations across the company," said Paul D. Koonce, executive vice president and president and chief executive officer of Dominion Energy's Power Generation Group."

The 15-MW Myrtle Solar project, located on about 120 acres in the City of Suffolk, is expected to enter service in the second quarter of 2020. The 80-MW Greensville Solar facility, occupying more than 1,000 acres near  Emporia, Virginia, in Greensville County, is targeted to come online in late 2020.

Dominion Energy is headquartered in Richmond, Virginia.

I live in the Myrtle community off of 460 and I\'m happy to see renewable energy being created there and positive planning for our future.
