Dominion Energy Virginia has more than 6,700 miles of transmission lines. This project replaces existing overhead structures with new, similar overhead structures within the existing right of way. In doing so, the line will be rebuilt to current safety and industry standards.

The existing line is built primarily on wooden H-frame structures. The line will be rebuilt primarily using brown, weathering steel H-frame structures at similar heights as the original structures. The average height of the existing structures is approximately 60 feet; the average height of the new structures is approximately 85 feet.

Our forestry team will survey trees in the area to identify danger trees that need removal. Danger trees are trees outside the right of way, and possibly on your property, that have the potential to fall within 10 feet of the transmission wires or structures. Trees and tree limbs that come in contact with electric lines are a leading cause of power outages, especially during storms. The removal of danger trees is necessary to help prevent large scale outages in your community.

If we need to access your property, our forestry team or authorized contractors will contact you. We are committed to working safely and courteously on your property. If you have questions or concerns about the right of way corridor, please email etrow@dominionenergy.com or call 800-215-8032.

Dominion Energy completes an evaluation of potential environmental, cultural and historical impacts of the project. We will work with local, state and federal agencies to complete these evaluations and mitigate any impacts. Permits are obtained from appropriate North Carolina agencies, and transmission line projects usually include the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. 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.
