Dominion Energy Signs PPA
Dominion Energy South Carolina (DESC) signed a PPA with Southern Current, an energyRe company for Lone Star Solar in Calhoun County, South Carolina.
When commercial operations begin in 2024, the Lone Star Solar plant will have 107.8 megawatts (MWdc) of renewable power capacity.
The project will also deploy a 198 megawatt-hour (MWh) Battery Energy Storage System (BESS) across the 572-acre facility.
"As the United States accelerates toward a sustainable future, energyRe is ready to deliver the reliable clean power our communities need to meet growing energy demands," said Miguel Prado, CEO of energyRe, in a statement. "This agreement will stimulate significant local investment, job creation and emissions reductions across the region."
Pending acceptance for filing by the Public Service Commission of South Carolina and any other required regulatory approvals, Lone Star Solar is expected to reduce more than 140,000 metric tons of CO2 emissions.
