We are committed to continually reviewing and analyzing our energy infrastructure to provide the most safe and reliable electric service to our neighbors. It has become necessary for us to address two aging transmission lines that have been in operation for more than 50 years.




  • Requires no new right of way
  • Replaces the line to meet current electrical and safety standards
  • New monopole structures with less environmental impact replace lattice-style structures


Dominion Energy is proposing to rebuild an approximately 2.9-mile corridor of electric transmission line between the Chesterfield Substation to the Enon Substation in Chesterfield County. The project will replace 16 structures that have reached the end of their service life with new structures that meet current safety and industry standards

Community Engagement

At Dominion Energy, we are committed to keeping our neighbors informed about energy needs where they live and work. We want to hear from you as we continue to analyze the various components of the proposed project.

As the project develops, we will:

  • Continue outreach by communicating with legislators, homeowner associations and other identified stakeholders
  • Host two, virtual open houses in the summer with property owners, homeowners associations and the public
  • Provide ongoing communications through informational materials, mailings, email updates and project website

Frequently Asked Questions

How can residents and business owners in the community become involved in this process?

There will be two open house events this spring where the public can meet with our subject matter experts to learn details on the project. In addition, the Transmission Application Process Chart identifies the more formal way the public can become involved in the state approval process. You can also contact us and add your address and email to our distribution list.

Will Dominion Energy propose putting this line underground or overhead?

Dominion Energy has more than 6,700 miles of overhead transmission lines. The proposed project seeks to replace existing overhead structures with new overhead structures within the same existing right of way. In doing so, the line will be brought up to current safety and industry standards.

What will be the environmental impact of construction of the line?

As part of the regulatory application process, Dominion Energy completes an evaluation of potential environmental, cultural, and historical impacts of the project. Dominion Energy works with local and state agencies to complete these evaluations and mitigate any impacts. All required permits are obtained and permitting conditions are met. Permitting agencies typically include the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, the Virginia Department of Conservation and Recreation, the Virginia Marine Resources Commission, the Virginia Department of Transportation Commenting agencies include the Virginia Department of Game and Inland Fisheries and the Virginia Department of Historic Resources, among others.
