Overview & Project Description

Dominion Energy currently operates 115 kilovolt (kV) electric transmission lines that provide critical electric service from Yorktown to Peninsula and serve Seaford Substation in York County, Newport News City and Hampton City, Virginia.

The existing 115 kV electric transmission lines were built in this corridor using double circuit 3 pole wood H-frame structures in 1957. We will rebuild the existing electric transmission line with double-circuit 115 kV brown weathering steel monopole structures in accordance with current electrical and safety practices.

The new double-circuit, brown weathering steel monopole structures will be located near each existing structure, just outside the existing footprint. The existing structures will be removed, and the foundations will be demolished just below grade.

FAQs

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.

How can I learn more about the electric transmission system?

  • The 21st Century Grid: This July 2010 article from National Geographic describes the electric grid and our modern day energy challenge.
  • The modern "electric grid," referring to the power lines that supply your home with electricity, receives power from many sources and types of generation including wind, coal, natural gas, hydroelectric and others. There is not a one-to-one connection between any fuel source and customer. Get more information on how the grid works.
