    Dominion installing its largest solar array in Loudoun

    The largest array of solar panels in Northern Virginia is coming to Sterling. More than 3,000 panels will be installed on top of the Prologis Concorde Distribution Center.

    Prologis operates and develops industrial real estate across the globe.

    Panels are expected to cross two rooftops measuring 102,000 square feet, just short of two football fields. Energy from the array will be flowed directly into Dominion's grid.

    A panel compilation of that size is expected to generate 800 kilowatts of energy or roughly enough to power 200 homes in the area.

    The $2.5 million project will be built by North Carolina-based PowerSecure, an engineering and construction company.

    “Our customers in Northern Virginia are focused on renewable energy and this installation reflects Dominion’s commitment to understanding how solar power can fit into our generation mix,” said Ken Barker, vice president of Customer Solutions.

    Ultimately Dominion hopes to operate up to 30 megawatts of solar power under its solar partnership program, enough to power approximately 7,500 houses.

    Dominion has other projects at a company in Gloucester and Old Dominion University in Norfolk.

    The panels are expected to be installed and fully operational by October.
