Virtual Community Meeting - Live Via WebEx

At Dominion Energy, we are committed to continually reviewing and analyzing our energy infrastructure to provide the most safe and reliable electric service. This project will add new electric transmission infrastructure along a 15-mile corridor in Mecklenburg County.

Dominion Energy is proposing to add two 230-kilovolt electric transmission circuits along an existing right-of-way that includes a double circuit 115-kilovolt line to better accommodate economic expansion and meet growing datacenter demand.

The Chase City to Cloud 230-kilovolt Project will begin just west of the Chase City Substation and make its way southeast towards the Cloud substation, near Boydton, VA. This line will cross the Tobacco Heritage Trail near the southern end of the transmission line.

This transmission project is approximately 15 miles long and in the Mecklenburg County.

Three primary forces drive the need for new electric transmission infrastructure:

  • Economic development, such as population growth or business expansion
  • Aging assets, such as decades old structures that need to be replaced
  • And complying with mandatory standards to ensure safety and reliability

These drivers often overlap, and at Dominion Energy, we believe solutions should always account for future energy needs while continuing to balance cost and impacts.

Timeline:

  • May - June 2021: Outreach to the community
  • May 25, 2021: Informational Virtual Community Meeting planned
  • June 30, 2021: Project filed with the Virginia State Corporation Commission

Project Goals

  • Accommodate economic expansion and meet data center demand
  • Provide long-term reliability and durability without excessive maintenance
  • Deliver operational system flexibility to meet future needs
  • Comply with mandatory standards to ensure safety and reliability

Recent

In June 2021, Dominion Energy plans to file an application for a Certificate of Public Convenience and Necessity (CPCN) with the Virginia State Corporation Commission (SCC).

SCC Approval Process

June 30, 2021 - anticipated filing date for SCC application

The Virginia State Corporation Commission (SCC) has regulatory authority over all energy providers in Virginia and requires certification for all transmission lines out of the ordinary course of doing business or are at or above 138 kV. Among other responsibilities, the SCC validates the need for a proposed line and approves the route and structures. In reviewing a proposed project, the SCC must consider whether potential impacts on scenic assets, historic districts and the environment have been reasonably minimized.

To learn more, view our SCC application review process.

Procedural Schedule

The following key dates and developments are related to the SCC review timeline. For the most up-to-date and full listing of motions, rulings and other related documents, please refer to the SCC docket for this case.
