Our customers have expressed a desire to have more renewables on the grid and the ability to select their energy generation sources. This innovative program provides an exciting way for Dominion Energy customers to contribute towards sustainable energy and add more solar power to Virginia's grid.

Participating customers choose to purchase energy from solar facilities located in communities throughout Virginia. Program participants then virtually use solar energy, without needing solar panels installed on their home or business.

Questions and Answers

  • Please submit any 2021 Community Solar related questions to communitysolar@dominionenergy.com.
  • Check this website frequently for answers to questions we receive.
  • Project Eligibility – In Part III A, RFP states that multiple proposals for the same facility can be made, so I am assuming that if a facility has multiple meters and the each meters consume up to 2MW dc then we can have multiple system for the same facility interconnected to each of its meter.

    Program FAQs

    The program is open to residential, commercial, and industrial customers. Customers receiving temporary service are not eligible.

    The cost is an additional $0.02 per kilowatt-hour. A typical customer using 1000 kWh would pay approximately $20 extra per month at the 100% option.

    Residential and commercial customers under 500 kW will have the option to subscribe to 100 kilowatt-hour blocks (max of five blocks) or subscribe to an amount that matches 100% of their monthly electricity use.

    Non-residential customers over 500kW are limited to ten blocks (1,000) kWh.

    No, nothing will change about how electricity is delivered to your home or business.
