Frequently Asked Questions

Pre-Application Requests are optional. However, a Pre-Application Report can provide valuable information on the Dominion Energy system that can be utilized to evaluate interconnection sites without incurring the expense of preparing a full Interconnection Request.

Pre-Application Reports provide only a snap-shot of the requested portion of the Dominion Energy system at the time of the report. A Pre-Application Request does not establish a queue position in the Dominion Energy Interconnection Queue.

If your project fails the Fast Track Process, it can be evaluation under a Supplemental Review Process or the Study Process, whichever is applicable to your specific project.

Fast Track Application Fees are intended to offset Dominion Energy’s cost of evaluating interconnection requests. Application Fees are not refundable.

Study Deposits are intended to offset Dominion Energy’s cost of evaluating and interconnecting generation projects. Dominion Energy will track the costs associated with an individual project. After the project’s completion, Dominion Energy will reconcile the cost to the deposit(s) provided. Dominion Energy will refund any over-collected amounts. If the costs exceed the deposit(s), the Interconnecting Customer will be invoiced for the remaining balance.
