Dominion Energy Virginia quadruples renewable commitment

Christian Fernsby |
Dominion Energy Virginia has quadrupled the amount of solar and wind generation in its 15-year, long-term integrated resource plan (IRP).

The increase is driven, in part, by Governor Ralph Northam’s executive order on climate change and the Virginia Clean Economy Act passed by the General Assembly.

Dominion Energy Virginia issued a request for proposals on May 1 soliciting bids for up to 1,000 MW of solar and onshore wind generation and up to 250 MW of energy storage in the Commonwealth.

This is the largest solicitation in the Company’s history for renewable energy in a calendar year and will promote its efforts toward a clean energy future.

Projected expansion of offshore wind, solar, and energy storage development amounts to approximately 24 new gigawatts of renewable energy and storage capacity over the next 15 years.
