Dominion Virginia Power, in a partnership with Microsoft and the state of Virginia, announced that they will build a new 20 megawatt solar power facility. The plant will produce enough energy to power 5,000 homes.
The state will purchase a large portion of that.
Tom Farrell, President and CEO of Dominion Virginia Power, says it’s just part of the company’s growing renewable portfolio.
Glen Besa, Director of the Sierra Club of Virginia, says the company is not doing enough to offset the carbon they produce from other sources.
