Solar, Onshore Wind and Energy Storage Proposals

Wind and solar generation

Dominion Energy Virginia is seeking bids for up to 1,000 megawatts (MW) of solar and onshore wind generation and up to 250 MW of energy storage in the Commonwealth. This is the largest solicitation in the Company’s history for renewable energy in a calendar year and will promote its efforts toward a clean energy future.

The RFP is soliciting bids for development assets for new solar or onshore wind power generation facilities or mechanically complete solar facilities under asset purchase agreements. The RFP is also seeking power purchase agreement bids where the Company will enter into an agreement for the energy, capacity, ancillary services, and environmental attributes including Renewable Energy Certificates from the facility. Additionally, the Company is seeking bids for new energy storage projects that may be paired with new solar or onshore wind facilities or that will be connected to the power grid as a stand-alone facility. The new facilities must be at least 5 MW (ac) in size, located in Virginia and commercially operational by the end of 2023 to be considered.

The RFP outlines the exact proposal requirements, including the power and asset purchase agreement terms as well as the price and non-price evaluation criteria. Among several criteria, the Company will favorably consider each proposal’s use of labor, materials and other resources within Virginia and from Virginia businesses.

Notices of Intent to Bid and Confidentiality Agreements are due by May 18, 2020 with final asset purchase and power purchase proposals due September 1, 2020 and March 1, 2021, respectively.
