Dominion Energy launches RFP for solar and storage projects in Virginia

By Simon Yuen

US utility Dominion Energy is seeking proposals for solar, wind and energy storage projects in the state of Virginia.

Dominion Energy will accept five types of proposals, including new solar PV projects and new PV solar generation co-located with energy storage. It will also look at new onshore wind, onshore wind co-located with energy storage and standalone energy storage.

The projects will help the utility reach its goal of net zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2050, part of which is deploying 3.1GW of energy storage by 2035.

There is one new aspect of this year’s request for proposals (RFPs) in the solar category, as Dominion Energy is looking for proposals within its service territory for non-residential rooftop solar development or mechanically complete projects, specifically on commercial, industrial and government-owned structures.

Specifically, the company is looking for rooftop solar projects with a capacity of less than 3MW in Virginia’s urban centres to reduce the load on the electric grid.

For other solar proposals, the company is seeking both utility-scale projects with a capacity of more than 3MW and distributed projects that are 3MW or less. Dominion Energy will only consider facilities located in Virginia. For distributed projects that are 3MW or less, the facilities must be located within Dominion Energy Virginia’s service territory, where location grid benefits are provided to its customers.

Additionally, proposals for mechanically complete projects that are 5MW or less will be accepted as in last year’s request for proposals.

Other categories in the RFP include new onshore wind projects, new onshore wind projects co-located with BESS and new standalone BESS.
