Dominion seeks bids for renewable energy projects.
Richmond-based Dominion Energy Virginia is looking for bids for about 300 megawatts of renewal energy generation.
The company has issued a request for proposals (RFP) and is soliciting bids for new solar and onshore wind facilities ranging from 10 to 150 megawatts in size.
The facilities must be in Virginia and connected to Dominion’s system.
The RFP follows the recent announcement of Facebook’s plans to use renewable energy to power a $750 million, 970,000-square-foot data center tol be built in Henrico County.
As part of the deal, Dominion and Facebook designed a renewable energy tariff called Schedule RF, which will be paid by Facebook and other large companies.
The tariff, which must be approved by the State Corporation Commission, would be used to create $250 million in new Dominion solar energy facilities.
The proposals sought in Dominion’s RFP can be for power purchase agreements, the purchase of development projects or a combination of both.
The RFP outlines the proposal requirements and power and asset purchase agreement terms.
Notices of intent to bid and confidentiality agreements are due by Oct. 27, with final proposals due on Dec. 1.
