Dominion Wants To Pay Customers A Premium For Solar

Play associated audio

Dominion Virginia Power is asking the state to let it buy electricity at a premium from customers with solar panels. 

The company wants to buy solar-generated power from people with small panel installations for 15 cents per kilowatt hour. That, the company says, should defray installation costs. 

The company has to get approval from the State Corporation Commission. The rate would be good for 5 years as part of a demonstration period. The money would come from the utility bills of about 14,000 Dominion customers who voluntarily pay more to support renewable energy.
