Dominion Energy unveils solar and wind power, battery storage
Renewable energy company Dominion has announced it will build an electric car battery storage system at its Virginia plant.
The company is building a system with an electric motor, battery, and a generator to store solar energy, wind power and lithium ion batteries, and then to power an electric vehicle, according to the company’s blog.
It is expected to cost about $10 million.
The company’s solar PV system is about one kilowatt-hour, which is about 25 times the capacity of an average U.S. home battery.
Dominion’s solar system is being developed with the help of a grant from the National Renewable Energy Laboratory.
The Solar Energy Systems Research Center, a DOE office within DOE, is part of the National Science Foundation, the agency responsible for awarding federal research funding.
A few years ago, Dominion was awarded a $1.5 million grant to further develop a battery storage solution that could store solar, wind and lithium ions.
The solar battery, which the company plans to use in a lithium ion battery pack, would store electricity generated by a solar panel or a wind turbine, and could be used as a backup to batteries on landfills or in cities.
The new battery will also be able to store energy stored in a battery, solar cell, or grid battery, the company says.
This is the first time the company has offered a lithium-ion battery system, according the company.
“We’re excited to be working with a leader in the solar and battery industry to bring solar, battery and grid energy storage solutions to our customers,” said Matthew Wojcicki, a Dominion executive vice president and chief scientist.
The solar energy storage system would be integrated into Dominion’s existing solar PV battery, according, the blog.
The battery would be used to store the energy generated by Dominion PV systems.
The Dominion battery system will be powered by a 500 watt lithium ion polymer battery.
The battery would also store the electricity generated from a solar or wind farm, the Dominion blog states.
It is hoped that Dominion will eventually use the solar energy to power a solar-powered vehicle.
Domion’s solar power storage solution will also include an inverter, which converts solar energy into electricity.
Dominion says it is working with various energy storage companies to design and build these inverters.
It plans to develop solar energy energy storage inverters that can convert up to 90 percent of electricity generated in a solar system into electricity, the battery company states.
Domination’s solar energy and grid storage solutions are expected to provide significant benefits to consumers.
The Virginia plant is one of four facilities Dominion is building in Virginia.
The first is a $10.5 billion solar plant in the Virginia Beach area that is scheduled to be completed in 2021.
The second is a 10-megawatt battery facility in Chesapeake, Virginia, which will be completed later this year.
The third is a 200 megawatt lithium ion solar plant, and the fourth is a 300 megawad battery plant that will be constructed in Virginia Beach.
The companies first battery systems were developed in 2013 and 2014 at a power plant in Virginia, where the batteries were designed to store electricity from a wind farm or solar system.
The batteries were then moved to the Virginia Power System (VPWS) in 2016 and to a power grid facility in Virginia for use in its lithium ion cell storage system.
