August 29, 2017, the Virginia SCC issued its final order in the Remington-Gordonsville transmission case approving the Company’s project along the existing right of way corridor between the Company’s Remington substation in Fauquier County and our Gordonsville substation in Albemarle County.

The final order is consistent with the Hearing Examiner’s report and recommendations, includes, among other things, that there is a need for the project. The project is approved using weathering steel monopoles on 100 foot wide right of way, with the flexibility to implement shorter H-frame structures, where feasible (and with voluntary consent from affected property owners to expand the right of way from 100 feet to 140 feet to accommodate the shorter structure option).


The approved solution will use the existing corridor from the Remington Substation in Fauquier County to the Gordonsville Substation in Albemarle County. This will include wrecking and rebuilding the single circuit 115kV structures within the corridor as a double circuit 230kV/115kV transmission line. To accommodate a second line along this corridor, structure heights will increase and the Company anticipates that the existing right of way may need to be expanded in certain locations.
