Dominion Virginia Power Hopes for Navy Contract
The Oceana Naval Air Station in Virginia Beach, VA, may be getting a 21 MW solar installation, according to the Virginian-Pilot.
The story says that The Navy and Dominion Virginia Power are cooperating on the project. The next step is for the utility to petition the state for approval. That will happen this summer. If the petition is approved, Dominion Virginia Power will build, own, operate and manage the facility for 37 years. Oceana will receive electrical infrastructure upgrades as part of the deal.
The new facility in Virginia Beach could be operational by next year, the story said. The story says that The Navy has a goal of reducing energy consumption by 50 percent by 2020.
Earlier this year, The Navy awarded Pepco Energy Services an $80.4 million Energy Services Performance Contract for the Naval Station Great Lakes.
