RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) - Dominion could soon build a solar power facility in southside Virginia.

According to the times dispatch, Halifax County wants to plan a facility that would generate about 4 megawatts of power and be the largest solar-battery facility in Virginia.

Dominion still needs to ask the state corporation commission for permission to build.

The project could cost $27.9 million dollars. If approved, the project would not begin until 2012.
