Scott Solar, Whitehouse Solar, and Woodland Solar
Dominion Energy built three large-scale solar projects that began serving customers in December 2016. They will add 56-megawatts of generation powered by renewable resources. At peak output, they are expected to produce enough electricity to power about 14,000 homes.
- Scott Solar: The solar facility produces 17-megawatts of electricity. It is located on 165 acres of land in Powhatan County.
- Whitehouse Solar: This project generates about 20-megawatts and is located in Louisa County. It encompasses a 250-acre site.
- Woodland Solar: The solar facility produces approximately 19-megawatts of electricity located in Isle of Wight County. The project is situated on approximately 200 acres.
The three projects include facilities comprised of ground-mounted single-axis tracking solar panel arrays, which are a reliable, proven technology, and expected to have an operating life of 35 years.
