Va. regulators OK community solar pilot programs for cooperatives

Virginia regulators have approved applications from four of the state's electric cooperatives seeking to offer voluntary community solar pilot programs to residential customers.

The State Corporation Commission on July 24 issued orders authorizing Mecklenburg Electric Cooperative Inc., Rappahannock Electric Cooperative, Northern Neck Electric Cooperative Inc. and A & N Electric Cooperative to launch three-year pilot programs that will provide community solar subscriptions to their member-consumers. The programs will allow residential consumers to select solar power to cover all or a portion of their electric usage each month.

The co-ops are all member-owners of Old Dominion Electric Cooperative, which supplies wholesale power to 11 member electric distribution cooperatives in Virginia, Maryland and Delaware.

Old Dominion Electric Cooperative has entered into a power purchase agreement to buy the output from two solar plants in Virginia and the co-ops will sell 50 kWh blocks of energy from the facilities to subscribers under a flat and fixed community solar tariff.
