Virginia Solar Legislation

Multi-Family and Shared Solar

The Virginia Shared Solar program in Dominion territory as well as the Multi-family shared solar program for Old Dominion Power and Dominion Energy customers are open for project licensing.
As of Jan 2022, there are a number of licensed projects filed for the Shared Solar program, but no licenses have been filed yet for the multi-family program. The larger Dominion-only shared solar program won’t be available to subscribers until mid 2023.
