Virginia’s clean energy policies introduced during 2020 included the US’ biggest state-level target for deployment of energy storage - and the state’s regulator has now introduced the rules intended to enable achievement of that target.
In light of Virginia’s goal to go 100% renewable and clean energy by 2050, utility Dominion Energy has issued a Request for Proposals (RFP) for 1,000MW of onshore wind and solar and up to 250MW of energy storage as well as laying out longer-term plans.
Virginia Governor Ralph Northam two days ago signed the Virginia Clean Economy Act (VCEA), finally putting into law a 3.1GW energy storage target and a goal to achieve 100% renewable and clean energy by 2050 for the US Commonwealth State.
US Commonwealth of Virginia’s bicameral lawmaking body has finally passed a version of a recent clean energy - and economy - bill that has proven acceptable to both sides of the house.
US utility company Dominion Energy has started development of four large-scale battery storage plants totalling 16MW of output in the Commonwealth of Virginia.
Virginia lawmakers passed a bill to support the US Commonwealth’s electric grid going 100% “clean” by 2050, which includes an energy storage deployment target of 3.1GW by 2035.
Dominion Energy Virginia has signed off on four battery storage pilot projects to help open avenues for additional energy storage technology needed to support the company's boost in renewables and to improve grid reliability.
