Philip Morris USA (PM USA) is the latest company to partner with Dominion Virginia Power under the Solar Partnership Program by hosting what will become the largest solar installation in Virginia to date. Dominion is currently installing about 8,000 ground-mounted solar panels at the PM USA Park 500 facility in Chesterfield County.

Florida Power & Light Company (FPL) and Daytona International Speedway (DIS) plan to install commercial-scale distributed solar power at the "World Center of Racing," complementing the ongoing $400 million DAYTONA Rising redevelopment project.

The project's total generating capacity is expected to be approximately 1.7 MW, making it one of the largest distributed solar installations in Florida.
