Amid Likely Protests, Dominion to Outline Energy Plans

May 8, 2012

Virginia's largest utility is presenting its long-range generation plans to regulators.

Dominion Virginia Power is scheduled to outline its "integrated resource plan" on Tuesday to the State Corporation Commission in Richmond. The plan is updated every other year based on the utility's assumptions on load growth and other regulatory and market developments.

As previously outlined, Dominion plans to close or convert some of its power stations and open new ones, all part of its blueprint to meet growing energy demands.

Clean energy advocates argue that Dominion is not doing enough to promote solar and wind power, as well as other renewables. They plan to rally outside the SCC's offices during the hearing.

Some protesters will wear gas masks symbolizing dirty energy.
