“Solar energy is the key component of Dominion’s growth in renewable generating capacity. We are delighted to expand our solar footprint into Utah,” said David Christian, chief executive officer of Dominion Generation.

The project is expected to enter service in the second half of 2015 and has secured a 20-year power purchase agreement and an interconnection agreement.

JSI Construction Group will serve as the engineering, procurement, and construction (EPC) contractor, and JSI O&M Group will monitor and maintain the project during the initial years of operation.

With the addition of this solar project, Dominion now has 324-MW of solar generating capacity in development, under construction or in operation. The company’s renewable portfolio also includes approximately 850-MW of biomass, water and wind.
