Dominion has acquired three solar power development projects near Indianapolis from Sunrise Energy Ventures.
Expected to be in service before the end of this year, the projects will use photovoltaic technology with a fixed-axis system to generate a peak combined output of 28.6 MW.
‘Dominion has been adding renewable energy to its diversified generation mix and is very pleased to acquire these three solar projects,’ says Dominion Generation CEO David Christian. ‘These projects are consistent with Dominion's promotion of a portfolio of efficient conventional, nuclear and renewable resources.’
The three projects are known as Indy Solar I, Indy Solar II and Indy Solar III. Two of the projects, located southeast of Indianapolis in Franklin Township, will be sited on 155 acres. The third, located southwest of Indianapolis, will be sited on 134 acres. All three projects are on flat agricultural and forest land.
The projects have 15-year power purchase agreements with Indianapolis Power and Light Co.
