Remington Solar Power Facility

  • In March 2016, Dominion Energy announced plans for the Remington Solar Power Facility to be developed as a public-private partnership with the Commonwealth of Virginia and Microsoft. The facility entered service October 2017.
  • The 20-megawatt project was built on approximately 125 acres of land owned by Dominion Energy near its Remington Power Station in Fauquier County, Virginia.
  • The ground-mounted, fixed-tilt solar facility contains nearly 236,000 photovoltaic panels and at peak capacity can generate enough electricity to provide power for 5,000 homes.
  • The Commonwealth purchases the solar energy output generated from the facility and Microsoft purchases the renewable energy attributes in support of its sustainability goals.
  • The Commonwealth is the sole recipient for all the energy generated at the facility as part of the agreement.
  • Microsoft's purchase of all the environmental attributes, including renewable energy credits generated by the facility, lowers the cost of the energy purchased by the Commonwealth.
  • At the time the agreement was executed, the Commonwealth was projected to save $500,000 to $1 million in energy costs over the lifetime of the project.
