Dominion Energy Virginia, part of Dominion Energy (NYSE:D), is seeking proposals for close to 1.2 GW of renewable energy generation and up to 100 MW of energy storage.
The company said in a statement on Thursday that it has issued its annual Requests for Proposals (RFPs), looking for new solar, onshore wind and energy storage projects to support the objectives of the Virginia Clean Economy Act (VCEA).
The first RfP is for utility-scale projects and targets up to 1 GW of solar and onshore wind, either through securing their ownership or by signing power purchase agreements (PPAs) for their output. Also, the company is soliciting bids for up to 100 MW of batteries. The deadline for Notices of Intent to Bid and Confidentiality Agreements is May 20, 2021. All submitted projects have to be greater than 3 MW and located in Virginia.
The second RfP is targeting up to 175 MW of small-scale solar projects of not more than 3 MW each, including 80 MW planned for commercial operation in 2023 and a further 95 MW for 2024. The deadline here is the same as in the utility-scale RfP.
At the same time, the company is looking for up to 8 MW of projects, each of 2 MW or less, under its Community Solar Pilot programme. These should be filed by May 21, 2021.
Dominion has over 5.2 GW of solar under development or in operation in Virginia and is also working on a 2.64-GW offshore wind project off the coast of the state.
