Dominion Energy Community Solar Logo

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.

Your monthly charge for Community Solar is in addition to your monthly electric bill. It may take up to one billing cycle to complete your enrollment.

Dominion Energy Community Solar requires a one year commitment. After one year, your subscription will continue month-to-month, and you may cancel with 30 days’ notice.

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.

We will conduct annual reviews and if it’s necessary to raise rates to ensure it reflects the current market value, we will give advance notice to customers.

No, nothing will change about how electricity is delivered to your home or business. The renewable energy will be added to the grid on your behalf.

  1. Available to customers with peak demand of 5 MW or less.
  2. Commercial customers over 500kW are limited to ten blocks (1,000 kWh) and cannot subscribe at 100%.
  3. When you purchase from these programs, you purchase the energy and RECs from a portfolio of renewable resources owned or contracted by Dominion Energy.
  4. Generation locations include: NJ, PA, DE, DC, VA, OH, IN, IL, MD, WV, MO, KY, TN, NC, SC, GA, MS, AL, LA or AR.

Also please consider on-site renewable energy options like net metering.

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.
