100% renewable energy program

This new voluntary program enables residential and non-residential customers with the opportunity to match 100 percent of their energy needs with solar, hydropower and biomass renewable energy. The Dominion Energy 100% Renewable Energy program provides customers with the ability to support the continued development of renewable energy sources and ensure a diverse fuel mix.

How it works

Dominion Energy 100% Renewable Energy  allows customers’ monthly energy usage to be sourced by renewable energy that is generated in the same month and ensures the RECs produced by that same renewable energy generation are purchased and retired on their behalf.

We match 100% of participant’s monthly electricity use with renewable energy. An additional .398 cents will be added to your bill for every kilowatt-hour of energy you use. This premium goes towards the electricity and Renewable Energy Certificates (RECs) associated with this program. For an average residential customer, this is usually less than $5.00 per month.  See our FAQs below for more details.

Act Now

To enroll in the program, login to Manage Account.

  • Residential Customers will visit “Energy Use & Conservation” and then select “Renewable Energy Programs.”
  • Non-residential customers will visit “Energy Use & Management” and then select “Energy Management.

Renewable Energy Mix

All types of renewable energy under Virginia law are eligible: solar, wind, geothermal, hydropower, wave, tidal, biomass and landfill gas.

The current portfolio of resources includes Scott, Whitehouse, and Woodland solar facilities; Essex, Williamston Speight, HXOap, Cork Oak and Sunflower solar power purchase contracts, Gaston and Roanoke Rapids hydropower facilities; and Altavista, Hopewell and Southampton biomass units.

Each year, we will share the annual renewable resource mix of the energy and RECs used in the previous year. We will include location, amount and type of energy supported by the program, so you know exactly what you’re supporting.

Frequently Asked Questions

Will my charges for Dominion Energy 100% Renewable Energy℠ change over time?

The 100% Renewable Energy charge (currently 3.98/kW) could potentially change once a year. The premium will be updated annually to ensure it reflects the current market value of the renewable energy certificates. You will receive advanced notice of price changes.

Also, the total amount of the charge will fluctuate because it matches the total energy you’re using in your home or business each month. The average residential customer uses 1,000 kWh each month and would pay about $3.98, but you may use more or less energy than average. As a result, your charges will be higher or lower than this amount.

Example: If your monthly energy usage is 1,000 kWh, the additional charge on your bill will be $3.98. ($.00398 x 1,000 kWh = $3.98 added to your bill). If your monthly energy usage is 2,000 kWh, the additional charge is $7.96.

This extra charge will appear on your monthly bill in two rows as:

Rider TRG – Balancing Charge

It may take up to one billing cycle to complete your enrollment.

Can I cancel my enrollment?

Yes, you may cancel your enrollment in this voluntary rate at any time without penalty.

What is a REC?

Renewable Energy Certificates, or RECs, are tradeable certificates that prove renewable energy was generated on the purchasers’ behalf. A REC represents one thousand kilowatt hours (kWh) of renewable energy that can be paired with electricity.
