Dominion Power Launching Solar Panel Program


June 19, 2013

Dominion Virginia Power is launching a program for people who want to install solar panels on their property.

On Thursday, the power company will begin accepting online applications for their Solar Purchase Program, which will help eligible customers offset the cost of adding solar power to their homes and properties.

"We have seen a growing interest from customers since we announced this program last year," said Ken Barker, vice president-Customer Solutions and Energy Conservation. "This pilot program, which receives funding through our Dominion Green Power program, gives our customers who are interested in getting power from the sun another option than net metering that could help them reduce their installation costs."

Customers interested in participating can obtain and submit an application online at www.dom.com, keyword: Solar Purchase Program. Participation in the program is first-come, first-serve, and is limited to a total of 3 megawatts.
