Dominion Energy Virginia announced an RFP for 10 megawatts of new solar generation for its Community Solar Pilot Program.
The RFP seeks energy, capacity and renewable energy attributes from solar facilities up to 2 MW, or up to 2 MW carve outs from larger facilities, located within and interconnected to Dominion Energy Virginia's transmission and distribution footprint. The RFP outlines the proposal requirements and power purchase agreement terms, as well as the price and non-price evaluation criteria, which were developed with input from stakeholders.
The Community Solar Pilot Program – which the company plans to file with the Virginia State Corporation Commission by early 2018 – is a voluntary program allowing customers the opportunity to purchase energy from new solar facilities located in communities throughout Dominion Energy Virginia's service area.
