Dominion Energy announced today that one of its subsidiaries has acquired the 150-megawatt (AC) Hardin solar generating facility, which recently entered service in Hardin County, Ohio, from Invenergy.
Facebook will take the electricity generated at the facility as well as the renewable energy credits, under a long-term agreement signed prior to the project's construction.
"With this solar project, Dominion Energy is expanding our solar generating portfolio into Ohio, where we have a deep history of serving our customers and communities through our local distribution business," said Diane Leopold, executive vice president and chief operating officer.
"This marks Dominion Energy's first solar energy investment in Ohio, where the company owns and operates a Cleveland-based natural gas local distribution company serving 1.2 million customer accounts in, principally, northeastern Ohio. Dominion owns solar arrays in nine other states, including in North Carolina, South Carolina and Utah, where the company also owns and operates gas utilities," the company said
Dominion Energy closed on the acquisition in 2020, and construction activities were completed in December.
