Electric Generation

Dominion's generating facilities produce approximately 24,400 megawatts of efficient electric power.

Our nuclear stations have attracted international attention for their innovative programs, achievements and efficiency. Our fossil-fueled power stations primarily use coal to generate electricity, but natural gas and oil are also used. We also have a number of Non-Utility Generation Stations that contribute to the generation portfolio. In addition, we use renewable energy to produce electricity, including wind, solar, biomass fuels, and water that powers our hydroelectric generating facilities.

Dominion Generation uses this variety of power stations to enhance our system's reliability. This guards against major problems that might be produced by economic, environmental or technical problems that could arise in a single area.

The following table lists our generating units. Links are provided to help you learn more about them. For net summer capabilities and total generation data, visit our SEC Filings page and view the most recent Form 10K. Also learn about the company's Integrated Resource Planning.

Generation Technologies Assessment

The Electric Power Research Institute (EPRI) has developed a Generation Technologies Assessment that provides an in-depth look at current technologies, what it takes to power a city, electricity sources, methods of generation, and technologies by region. A Generation Technology Reference Card (PDF file) also is available.
