Dominion buys solar power projects in California

Dominion Resources bought six solar power development projects from Recurrent Energy, one of North America’s largest developers of utility scale solar energy projects.

The solar power project sites are located in California’s Fresno, Kern and Kings counties.

Long-term power purchase, interconnection, engineering, procurement and construction – and operation and maintenance agreements have been executed for each of the projects. Recurrent Energy will continue to support Dominion through the completion of these projects.

Construction commenced in the first quarter of this year and all of the solar facilities are expected to reach commercial operation in late 2014 or early 2015. All of the projects are expected to qualify for the Federal Investment Tax Credit and support Dominion’s growth plan.

Dominion currently has 41 MW of solar energy at sites in Georgia, Connecticut and Indiana.
