Dominion Virginia Power adds first solar demo site in Central Virginia

RICHMOND, USA: Dominion Virginia Power continues to add megawatts to its Solar Partnership Program by installing 240 photovoltaic panels on the rooftop of Virginia Union University's Thomas H. Henderson Center.

The system will be capable of generating about 70 kilowatts of electricity – enough to power nearly 18 homes. The Henderson Center serves as the central hub for student activities at the university.

"Dominion Virginia Power is making important strides in the solar energy arena," said Ken Barker, VP of Customer Solutions. "Businesses and educational institutions in the state, such as Virginia Union University, have shown they are as dedicated to the development of renewable energy as we are. We are thankful for their support and enthusiasm."

The installation at Virginia Union University is considered a demonstration site under Dominion's Solar Partnership Program. Demonstration sites are strategically selected locations that offer community benefits by providing opportunities for customer outreach and education of solar technologies.

PowerSecure, a North Carolina-based company with offices in Virginia, has been selected as the engineering, procurement and construction company.
