East Point Energy, an energy storage development firm, has sold the 15.7 megawatts (MW) / 62.8 megawatt-hours (MWh) Shands Energy Storage project to Dominion Energy Virginia.
Shands, located in Sussex County, Virginia, will be operational in 2023. Shands will enhance local grid reliability and serve as an essential component of Dominion Energy’s 100 percent clean energy future.
Dominion Energy acquired Shands as part of the company’s 2022 Clean Energy Request for Proposals. This is the second project that East Point has sold to Dominion as a result of this RFP process; the first being the 20 MW Dry Bridge Energy Center project.
In July 2022, East Point announced that it will operate as a subsidiary of Equinor, an international energy company. East Point will develop, construct, own and operate energy storage projects that contribute to making the grid more renewable, resilient, and affordable.
