Electric Transmission

Transmission Line Projects

The electricity that powers your home or business is delivered over Dominion transmission lines. Getting reliable power to our customers is a responsibility we take very seriously.

Dominion Virginia Power is projected to experience an increase in customer demand for electricity of nearly 4,000 megawatts by 2022, one of the fastest growth rates in a 13-state region that stretches from Chicago to the District of Columbia and the Mid-Atlantic.

Dominion plans to meet the increased demand in Virginia and North Carolina through a balanced program that includes:

  • Construction of new generating facilities, including those using renewable energy sources, and upgrades of  existing generating units;
  • Programs to help customers use energy more efficiently and reduce their demand for electricity at peak times, including very hot or cold days; and 
  • Improvements to the electric transmission and distribution system.

Information regarding our various transmission line projects is available by using the links provided on the left.
