Dominion seeks approval for power station in southwest Virginia

16 July 2007 -- Dominion Virginia Power, a subsidiary of Dominion, has applied with the State Corporation Commission for permission to build a 585-MW electric generating power station in Southwest Virginia.

In its filing Dominion requested that the commission approve the projected $1.6 billion Virginia City Hybrid Energy Center by April 2008 to allow adequate time for it to be built and begin operating by 2012. The commission must approve the construction and operation of the energy center and it must establish a rate of return for the company's investment in the project.

In testimony filed with the commission, Dominion said the station would have controls and features to reduce emissions and protect the environment.

The station will be located on a 1,700-acre site near St. Paul in Wise County.
