BOEM Approves Dominion Energy's Offshore Wind Project (Ind. Report)
Bureau of Ocean Energy Management
Date: 2019-10-16
In the Old Dominion State, Richmond-based Dominion Energy is reporting Bureau of Ocean Energy Management (BOEM) for the design, fabrication and installation of its previously reported 2,600-MW offshore wind project in US federal waters 27 miles off the Virginian coast.

With these approvals, construction is expected to get underway in mid 2020. Orsted will construct the project which will incorporate SiemensGamesa 6-MW turbines.

Dominion Considering Dulles Airport Solar Project (Ind. Report)
Dominion Energy Virginia
Date: 2019-10-07
In the Old Dominion State, Richmond-headquartered Dominion Energy reports it has inked a sublease with Metropolitan Washington Airports Authority (MWAA) -- Washington Dulles International Airport -- to begin feasibility studies for a proposed 100-MW solar energy project at the Dulles Airport.

If constructed, power from the solar project would connect to Dominion's existing transition line located on the airport's property in 2022.

Dominion Announces Energy Storage Pilot Projects (Ind Report)
Dominion Energy Virginia
Date: 2019-08-07
In the Old Dominion State, Richmond-based utility holding company Dominion Energy Virginia is reporting four utility-scale battery storage pilot projects totaling 16 megawatts -- the largest projects of their kind in Virginia.

The four proposed Central Virginia-based lithium-ion projects will cost approximately $33 million to construct and will provide key information on distinct use cases for batteries on the energy grid. Pending SCC approval, the pilots would be evaluated over a five year period once operational as currently expected in December 2020. The projects include:

  • Two battery systems totaling 12 MW at the Scott Solar facility in Powhatan County that will demonstrate how batteries can store energy generated from solar panels during periods of high production and help optimize the power produced by the solar facility.

  • A 2-MW battery at a substation in Ashland will explore how batteries can improve reliability and save on equipment replacement costs by serving as an alternative to traditional grid management investments such as transformer upgrades, necessary to serve customers during times of high energy demand.

  • A 2-megawatt battery at a substation in New Kent County serving a 20-MW solar facility will show how batteries can help manage voltage and loading issues caused by reverse energy flow, to maintain grid stability.

    Dominion notes it expects to cut generating fleet CO2 emissions 80 pct by 2050 and reduce methane emissions from its gas assets 50 pct by 2030. (Source: Dominion Energy, PR, Aug., 2019) Contact: Dominion Energy, Mark D. Mitchell, vice president – generation construction www.dominionenergy.com

  • 12MW Offshore Wind Demo Wins Virginia SCC Approval (Ind. Report)
    Dominion Energy Virginia
    Date: 2018-11-05
    In Richmond, the Virginia State Corporation Commission (SCC) reports it has approved a Dominion Energy Virginia petition to construct a $300 million, 12-MW offshore wind energy demo off the coast of Virginia Beach.

    The project, which will incorporate two wind turbines to be constructed by Dominion Energy, is expected to begin operating in December 2020. Onshore construction is slated to get underway in 2019, followed by turbine installation and operation in 2020. Dominion Energy Virginia is working on the project with Orsted.

    Dominion Seeks Experimental Offshore Wind Turbine Approval (Ind. Report, New Prod & Tech)
    Dominion Energy,
    Date: 2018-08-06
    Reporting from Norfolk in the Old Dominion State, Dominion Energy Virginia reports it has submitted a proposal to the State Corporation Commission to construct two wind turbines 27 miles off the coast of Virginia Beach, at the state's expense. Dominion is working with the Danish wind industry giant Orstad -- fka DONG Energy -- on the project.

    The experimental turbines will provide data that could pave the way for a vast wind farm at a future date.

    The project will test new designs to anchor the turbines in seabed conditions found off the Virginia coast and to withstand hurricane-force winds.

    The Commission previously rejects the project as too risky and expensive. (Source: Dominion Energy Virginia, Bacon's Rebellion, Blog, 4 Aug., 2018)Contact: Dominion Energy Virginia, https://twitter.com/dominionenergy, www.dominionenergy.com
