Dominion Acquires Two Largest Solar Projects in Tennessee
Dominion acquired two stand-alone solar energy developments in southwest Tennessee, currently in late stage development by Strata Solar of Chapel Hill, N.C. All power and environmental attributes from both projects will be purchased by the Tennessee Valley Authority (TVA) under their renewable standard offer program. Interconnection to the electric grid will take place through facilities owned and operated by Pickwick Electric Cooperative of Selmer, TN. Engineering, procurement and construction will continue to be handled by Strata Solar under the terms of the agreement. Once the projects are operational, ongoing operations and maintenance will also be handled by Strata Solar. Commercial operation is slated for the fourth quarter of this year.
