SunEnergy sells 60-MW solar project in North Carolina to Dominion

Summit Farms Solar LLC, SunEnergy Developments LLC and Dominion Solar Projects V Inc. on Sept. 1 notified the North Carolina Utilities Commission of the transfer of the upstream ownership of Summit Farms from SunEnergy to Dominion Solar, which is part of Dominion Resources (NYSE: D).

In June 2015, the commission issued a certificate of public convenience and necessity to Wildwood Solar LLC for construction of a 40-MW (ac) solar photovoltaic facility to be located at 1374 Caratoke Highway, Moyock, Currituck County, North Carolina. The commission on Aug. 9 of this year approved the transfer of the Wildwood CPCN to Summit Farms, which is an affiliate of SunEnergy1 LLC. In the same order, the commission also granted Wildwood’s request to amend the CPCN to authorize construction by Summit Farms of a 60-MW (ac) solar PV facility, rather than the 40-MW facility previously approved.

With the Sept, 1 letter, the parties notified the commission that Dominion Solar has purchased all of the membership interests in Summit Farms from SunEnergy. As a result of the acquisition, the upstream ownership of Summit Farms has changed, but Summit Farms will continue to hold the Summit Farms CPCN issued on Aug. 9.

In connection with this transfer, the contact information for Summit Farms is now: Summit Farms Solar LLC c/o Dominion Resources Services Inc., 5000 Dominion Boulevard Glen Allen, Virginia 23060, Attention: Director-Renewable Energy.
