Dominion buys two solar projects
A subsidiary of Richmond-based Dominion Energy Inc. has acquired two solar projects that will generate power for a major telecommunications company.
Dominion Generation bought the projects from Savion LLC, a subsidiary of Macquarie's Green Investment Group.
Power generated at the two sites, as well as the renewable energy credits, will go to telecommunications company T-Mobile USA Inc. under long-term contracts.
Dominion said Thursday that one of the sites, the 15-megawatt Myrtle Solar project, is located on about 120 acres in Suffolk. It is expected to begin generating power in the second quarter of 2020.
The other project, the 80-megawatt Greensville Solar facility, will occupy more than 1,000 acres in Greensville County near Emporia. It is expected to come online in late 2020.
