On September 19th the Virginia State Corporation Commission (SCC) will host an official hearing to approve a Community Solar Power Program proposed by Dominion Virginia Power. The proposal would allow Dominion to construct and operate up to 30 megawatts (MW) of solar, enough to power nearly 6,000 homes. This is a small step for Dominion, but it’s a move in the right direction for the health of our families.
Right now, the Dominion definition of a clean energy future is to build just 33 MW of Virginia-made clean energy compared to 5,075 MW of dirty energy by 2027! This is the reality of clean energy in Virginia even though the Commonwealth has far more capacity for solar power than New Jersey, which has already constructed 850 MW of solar with nearly 600 MW more to come.
