Renewable energy power purchase agreements; pilot programs. Increases the aggregated capacity of all solar-powered or wind-powered generation facilities that are subject to third party power purchase agreements from 50 megawatts to 150 megawatts in Dominion Energy's pilot program and from seven to 21 megawatts in Appalachian Power's pilot program. The measure allows any public or private elementary or secondary school or any public or private institution of higher education to participate in Appalachian Power's pilot program; currently only nonprofit, private institutions of higher education may do so. The measure increases the maximum generation capacity of an eligible solar-powered or wind-powered generation facility from one megawatt to three megawatts. The measure also requires the State Corporation Commission to update its guidelines for the pilot program and repeals the sunset clause applicable to the pilot program in effect for Dominion Energy.
