Of the total, $200 million is earmarked for a 500 mw combustion turbine power plant at the Southern Virginia Megasite at Berry Hill, in Pittsylvania County. The power plant is slated for completion and startup by April 2022.
A second investment of approximately $130 million is targeted for the 120 mw Maplewood Solar project northwest of Chatham. Dominion purchased the Maplewood Solar project from Austin, Texas-based Open Road Renewables which had obtained the necessary special use permit from Pittsylvania County zoning, but still requires Virginia Department of Environmental Quality approval.
