According to the Southern Environmental Law Center (SELC), “BREAKING: For the first time, #Virginia officials reject Dominion Energy’s long-term #energy plans, including inflated energy projections.” See below for the order by Virginia’s State Corporation Commission (SCC), which states that:
“…the Commission finds, based on the record of this proceeding and applicable statutes, that the Company has failed to establish that its 2018 [Integrated Resource Plan – IRP], as currently filed, is reasonable and in the public interest. The Commission further finds that the Company shall correct and refile its 2018 IRP subject to the provisions of this Order.”
Among other problems, the SCC found that “The Company did not, however, model $870 million in energy efficiency programs, nor did it model a battery storage pilot required by Senate Bill 966,” also that it “did not include costs associated with the Company’s Strategic Undergrounding Program (“SUP”), Grid Transformation Plan, or Transmission Line Undergrounding Pilot, each of which was contained in, or modified by, Senate Bill 966.1.”
Heckuva job, Dominion! Not.
