SCC

SCC Approval Process - Status Approved

On December 6, 2017, the Virginia State Corporation Commission remanded the case back to the Hearing Examiner to receive additional evidence and legal analysis on 1) the need for the transmission line; and 2) any additional route variations to the routes proposed in the record. This in effect paused the June 23, 2017, Final Order and earlier Interim Order, which approved Dominion Energy’s application, while these additional proceedings took place.

On June 12, 2018, the SCC issued its order reaffirming the need for the Haymarket transmission line. And on July 26, 2018, the SCC issued its final order approving the project along the I-66 Hybrid Route, including it in the underground transmission pilot program.

The State Corporation Commission (SCC) is responsible for verifying the need of a project and determining the route the project will follow.

Dominion Energy submitted its application regarding the Haymarket Project on November 6, 2015. Documents related to the case are made available to the public on the SCC Docket Search section of the SCC web site, in the "Search Cases" section (enter case number PUE-2015-00107). In addition, interested parties may also comment directly to the SCC by sending an email to sccinfo@scc.virginia.gov.
