Va. environmental agency awards permit to Dominion for 17-MW solar facility

Dominion Energy Inc. on Oct. 2 received the Virginia Department of Environmental Quality's approval to build and operate the 17-MW UVA Hollyfield Solar Project in King William County, Va.

According to an Oct. 6 news release from the Virginia governor's office, the solar project will supply enough electricity to serve more than 4,000 homes and is expected to offset the production of 20,085 tons of carbon dioxide. When the project was announced in December 2016, Dominion said the solar plant's output would be supplied to the University of Virginia and its Darden School of Business.

"This latest announcement is a testament to how rapidly Virginia's solar sector is growing," Gov. Terry McAuliffe said in the news release, adding that Virginia has 2,600 MW of solar in service or under development.
