Dominion Energy announced it has activated two South Carolina solar projects totaling 81 MW, one of which is the largest in the state.
The company's 71.4-MW Solvay Solar Energy-Jasper County, S.C., facility near Ridgeland has a long-term power purchase agreement with SCE&G. Solvay, an international chemicals and advanced materials company with sites in Charleston, Greenville, Piedmont, Rock Hill and Spartanburg will purchase all of the associated renewable energy credits for 15 years.
Dominion Energy's 10-MW Ridgeland Solar project has both a PPA and REC agreement with SCE&G.
In total, Dominion Energy brought online 466 MW of solar generating capacity in 2017 in California, North Carolina, South Carolina and Virginia. The company invested more than $900 million in those projects.
