Dominion Energy Virginia issued a request for proposals seeking solar and onshore wind generation to be operational in 2021 and 2022.
The request for proposals is part of the Dominion Energy Inc. subsidiary's commitment to having 3,000 MW of solar and wind generation in Virginia by 2022, the company said in a news release Aug. 5. Dominion Energy plans to cut its carbon footprint by 80% by 2050 across the 18 states in which it serves customers.
In the news release, Dominion Energy Virginia said it was seeking bids for 500 MW of solar generation in both 2021 and 2022, but the RFP is titled "2019 Solicitation for New Photovoltaic SOlar and Onshore Wind Power Supply Generation" and specifies that both solar and wind resources will be considered.
Under the request for proposals, the company is soliciting bids for energy, capacity and environmental attributes, including renewable energy certificates, for new facilities of at least 5 MWac capacity located in Virginia. The proposals can be for power purchase agreements and/or the purchase of development projects.
Notices of intent to bid and confidentiality agreements are due by Aug. 15. Final asset purchase and power purchase proposals are due Oct. 3 and Jan. 16, 2020, respectively. More information is available at www.dominionenergy.com/2019solarwindrfp.
Dominion Energy Virginia is known legally as Virginia Electric and Power Co.
