Summary: 

Note: As the program is approaching its end, Dominion has filed an application with the Commission in 2018 to keep the existing participants on the tariff on a year-to-year basis. The program is now closed to new applicants. 

In March 2013, the Virginia State Corporation Commission approved a rate program for Dominion Virginia Power customers that install solar PV systems. The rate was approved at 15 cents per kWh with a 5 year contract. Both residential and nonresidential customers are eligible for the program. The program is capped 3 MW, with 60% of the capacity reserved for residential customers and 40% reserved for nonresidential customers. Customers must install a separate meter for the PV system and sell all of the generation back to Dominion. Customers will pay a charge for the meter.  Application materials are available on the program web site. Participation is based on a first-come, first-serve basis until it reaches the 3 MW cap. 

The program is considered a pilot program that will last for 5 years, at which point the Dominion will decide whether or not to move forward with a permanent program.
