Dominion Energy Virginia issued a request for proposals (RFP) for distributed solar projects to help meet renewable energy goals set forth by the company and the Commonwealth of Virginia.
The RFP seeks bids for development assets for new distributed solar generation facilities or mechanically complete solar facilities under asset purchase agreements. The RFP is also seeking power purchase agreement bids where the company will enter into an agreement for the energy, capacity, ancillary services, and environmental attributes including Renewable Energy Certificates from the facility.
The new facilities must be no larger than three megawatts (MW)(ac) in capacity, located in the Dominion Energy Virginia service area and commercially operational by the end of 2022 to be considered.
The RFP outlines the exact proposal requirements, including the power and asset purchase agreement terms as well as the price and non-price evaluation criteria and you can view it here.
