A Smart Grid for More Clean Energy

Over the past two years, Dominion Energy has grown its solar fleet in Virginia and North Carolina from near zero to about 1,350 megawatts in service or near construction. That’s enough clean energy to power 340,000 homes during peak sunshine. At the same time, customer rooftop solar installations have more than doubled since 2015.

Our energy future will include more renewable energy spread throughout our system. However, right now we deliver electricity through a power grid that was designed for one-way energy flow from large power plants to customers.

A transformed grid will:

  • Better integrate renewable generation while ensuring safe and reliable service to all customers
  • Streamline the process of connecting distributed generation like solar to the grid
  • Allow us to offer customers new renewable energy options, regardless of where they live
