Dominion buys 5 MW solar power project in Connecticut

Dominion bought a solar power project in Somers, Connecticut capable of producing about 5 MW (AC) of renewable energy. Dominion bought the project from Kyocera in a deal that closed October 22. Financial information on the deal was not available.

Kyocera and CleanPath, a San Francisco-based clean energy company, jointly developed the Somers project, which is expected to begin commercial operation within the 4th quarter of 2013.

The Somers Solar Center will use Kyocera’s photovoltaic technology to generate enough electricity to supply nearly 1,400 homes. The electricity will go to Connecticut Light & Power Co. under a 20-year purchased-power agreement.
