Frequently Asked Questions

What is gas-insulated technology?

GIS technology is specialized equipment used in areas where expansion of existing equipment is limited. By utilizing GIS technology, Dominion Energy will be able to largely utilize our existing footprint while modernizing the facility to meet area demand.

How will the completion of this project benefit me as a resident?

Due to the interconnected nature of the electric transmission grid, all power users in the area rely on Dominion Energy's transmission infrastructure to deliver reliable power. The enhanced substation will provide increased operational flexibility and greater system reliability. As an area resident, this means fewer outages, and shorter durations should an outage occur.

What is the process to get transmission work approved through the VA State Corporation Commission?

In its review, the SCC must confirm the need and approve a project that resolves the need and reasonably minimizes adverse impact on the scenic assets, historic districts and environment of the area concerned, with formal involvement of the Virginia Department of Environmental Quality, SCC Staff and other interested parties. There will be opportunities for the public to participate during the SCC review process, which may last six months or more.

Will Dominion Energy repair damage due to construction?

Yes. At Dominion Energy we strive to be good neighbors. The company, at its expense, will repair any private roads damaged by Dominion Energy or its contractors during construction or during future maintenance. In addition, we will reimburse property owners for damage, and repair or replace fences or gates if we damage them.
