The reliable operation, maintenance, expansion and modernization of the company’s electric transmission system are among our highest priorities. As such, the company continually evaluates and analyzes its existing transmission system and identifies facilities in need of improvement. As part of the announced retirement of coal-powered electricity generating units at Possum Point Power Station, in order to maintain adherence to federally mandated reliability standards, substation and transmission line upgrades are needed.

Project Update

Overview

All work will occur on Dominion Energy property at Possum Point Power Station. We plan to add an additional transformer at the existing 500 kV substation, make improvements to the existing 230 kV substation, and install nearly one mile of new transmission line in an existing line corridor.

Purpose

The project is necessary to resolve potential violations of the mandatory North American Electric Reliability Corporation (NERC) Reliability Standards related to the retirement of coal-powered electricity generating units at the Company’s Possum Point Power Station.

SCC Approval Process

The Virginia State Corporation Commission (SCC) is responsible for verifying the need, determining the route and reviewing the environmental impact of certain transmission lines in Virginia.

Once we submit our filing, documents related to the case will be available to the public on the SCC Docket Search section of the SCC website in the "Search Cases" section. In addition, interested parties may comment directly to the SCC by sending an email to sccinfo@scc.virginia.gov.
