Dominion announced on March 1, 2013, that it had acquired a solar energy development project in Georgia from Smart Energy Capital and Jacoby Development. The facility entered service in late 2013.
Dominion's Azalea Solar Power Facility produces approximately 8 megawatts (AC) using photovoltaic technology. The 40-acre project is located on 100 acres of farm and forest land about 60 miles southwest of Augusta, Ga.
The project has a 25-year power purchase agreement with Cobb Electric Membership Corp., one of the largest electric cooperatives in Georgia, serving roughly 200,000 customers.
