The Powhatan County-Scott Solar Facility – Battery Energy Storage Systems is a 12,000kW energy storage project located in Powhatan County, Virginia, US.

The electro-chemical battery energy storage project uses lithium-ion as its storage technology. The project was announced in 2019 and will be commissioned in 2020.


The Powhatan County-Scott Solar Facility – Battery Energy Storage Systems is owned by Dominion Energy (100%).

The key applications of the project are renewable energy integaration, electric energy time shift and demand response.

Contractors involved

Dominion Energy is the owner of Powhatan County-Scott Solar Facility – Battery Energy Storage Systems.

Additional information

Two battery systems totaling 12 MW at the Scott Solar facility in Powhatan County will demonstrate how batteries can store energy generated from solar panels during periods of high production and release energy during periods when load is high or solar generation is low. It would also help optimize the power produced by the solar facility. The two projects are part of Dominion Energy’s four Battery Storage Pilot Projects totaling 16 MW in Virginia.
