Virginia Electric and Power Company Key Developments

Dominion Starts Construction on $1.3 Billion Greensville County Power Station

Dominion Virginia Power has begun construction on its 1,588- megawatt Greensville County Power Station, immediately after the Virginia Air Pollution Control Board approved the station's air permit. The air permit issued on June 17 was the last regulatory hurdle the station had to clear before it could start construction. The power station will be a major boost for the region's economy. In its first year of operation, it is expected to provide up to $8 million in property taxes for Greensville County. Post-construction economic benefits are projected to amount to about $36 million annually, and about 166 jobs will be supported, with roughly half of these in Greensville County. Over its expected 36 year life, the station will save Dominion Virginia Power customers about $2 billion as a result of the company not having to purchase power from market sources. The Greensville County Power Station will be Dominion's second major generation project in Southside. The 1,358-megawatt combined-cycle facility is located just 5 miles from the Greensville site.

Dominion Virginia Power and the James River Association Settle Agreement on Discharges of Treated Water from Coal Ash Ponds

Dominion Resources announced that Dominion Virginia Power and the James River Association have reached a settlement agreement on discharges of treated water from coal ash ponds at the company's Bremo Power Station in Fluvanna County. James River Association, which takes action to promote conservation and responsible stewardship of the James River's natural resources, was represented by the Southern Environmental Law Center. The discharges are regulated by a permit issued in January by the State Water Control Board and Virginia Department of Environmental Quality, the company to build and operate a wastewater treatment system at the facility. Under the settlement agreement, the company has committed to enhanced treatment of the pond water and to fish tissue monitoring, and the James River Association and SELC will not appeal the wastewater permit issued for the Bremo Power Station.
