PITTSYLVANIA COUNTY, Va. – Dominion Energy has pulled the plug on its proposed power station project at the Southern Virginia Megasite at Berry Hill in Pittsylvania County.
The $200 million project would’ve been the first for the Mega Park, which is one of the largest industrial sites on the East Coast.
In November 2019, Dominion announced plans to build a $200 the peaking plant, which would have provided power to meet energy demands during high usage periods. But Dominion now says they no longer believe it is possible to build the units planned in Pittsylvania County, “despite the economic and reliability benefits for our customers.”
The Megasite location has been chosen in part because of its proximity to the Williams Transco gas line and would have provided about $1.4 million in tax revenue for Pittsylvania County.
