Frequently Asked Questions

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

There will be a virtual community open house event on March 24, 2021 where the public can hear from subject matter experts to learn details on the project. In addition, the Transmission Application Process Chart outlines how the public can become involved in the Virginia State Corporation Commission (SCC) approval process. You can also contact us to add your mailing address and email address to our distribution list.

Will Dominion Energy propose placing 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 existing right of way. In doing so, the line will be rebuilt to current safety and industry standards.

What environmental impact will the line construction have?

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, 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.
