NORFOLK, Va. (AP) — Dominion Virginia Power is marking the installation of solar panels on roof of Old Dominion University's recreation center.

The state's largest utility and school officials in Norfolk dedicated the solar installation Tuesday.

Dominion says more than 600 solar panels were installed on the roof of the school's student recreation center as part of its Solar Partnership Program.

The Richmond-based energy provider says that the project at Old Dominion will generate 125 kilowatts for the electric grid, or enough to power 31 homes.

Virginia regulators in 2012 approved Dominion's program to build and operate up to 30 megawatts of company-owned solar facilities on leased rooftops or on the grounds of commercial businesses and public properties in its service area. When fully implemented, the program would generate enough power for 7,500 homes.
