Overview & Benefits

Dominion Energy is committed to continually reviewing and enhancing its electric system to provide safe, reliable, and affordable service to communities. As such, we are preparing to rebuild a 115 kilovolt (kV) electric transmission line between our Chesterfield Substation in Chesterfield County, Virginia and our Northeast Substation in Henrico County, Virginia. The approximately 14-mile section of electric transmission line has been in operation since the 1970s and is reaching its end of service life. Rebuilding this line will allow us to continue providing reliable service to your area.

Dominion Energy is committed to keeping the public informed about energy needs where they live and work. As the project develops, we will:

  • Host forums to obtain feedback from stakeholders and to answer their questions, and  
  • Provide ongoing communications through informational materials, correspondence, and updates to this website. 

Frequently Asked Questions

Dominion Energy will host a virtual community meeting at which the public can hear from subject matter experts and share comments about the project. You can also contact us to add your mailing address and email address to our distribution list.
The proposed project seeks to replace existing overhead structures with new overhead structures within the existing right of way. In doing so, the line will be rebuilt to current safety and industry standards.

As part of the regulatory application process, we complete an evaluation of potential environmental, cultural and historical impacts of the project. We work with local, state and federal agencies to complete these evaluations and mitigate any impacts. All required permits are obtained and permitting conditions are met. Permitting agencies typically include the Army Corps of Engineers, the Virginia Department of Conservation and Recreation, the Virginia Marine Resources Commission, and 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.

Our enterprise-wide environmental report describes our commitment to the responsible stewardship of natural resources and provides a wealth of information on environmental management and performance. We also invite you to read our Corporate Environmental Policy and our Greenhouse Gas Report.
