Dominion Virginia Power to Install State's Largest Rooftop Solar Project at Canon's Gloucester Facility

Dominion Virginia Power will install more than 2,000 solar panels on the rooftop of Canon Virginia Inc.'s (CVI) Industrial Resource Technologies (IRT) facility in Gloucester, making it the largest roof solar system in the Commonwealth.

Getting Started

The Solar Partnership Program is a multi-year pilot program designed to expand Dominion’s understanding of community-based solar energy by studying its impact and assessing its benefits while supporting and encouraging solar energy growth in Virginia.

How It Works

Under the Solar Partnership Program, Dominion will construct and operate up to 30 megawatts of company-owned solar facilities on leased rooftops or on the grounds of commercial businesses and public properties throughout our Virginia service area. Fully implemented, the program would generate enough power for 7,500 homes. Each installation could generate as much as two megawatts of electricity.

Preferred locations are large, flat rooftops on secure commercial facilities with close proximity to existing Dominion infrastructure.

Dominion will be responsible for determining which sites are best suited for the program using a variety of selection criteria. Dominion will consider:

  • Roof age and remaining life
  • Roof composition and condition
  • Roof warranty provisions
  • Structural analysis
  • Space availability
  • Adequate sun intensity for solar generation
