Dominion Energy’s proposed integrated resource plan, filed with the Virginia State Corporation Commission (SCC) on May 1, 2020, has been rejected as insufficient. The plan was to have included information related to the Virginia Clean Economy Act (VCEA) enacted by the General Assembly in 2020. In its February 5 order, the SCC stated:
Under the VCEA, Dominion must engage in robust planning to achieve the policy goals therein in a cost-effective manner. The Commission recognizes that Dominion did not have an extended opportunity to conform its 2020 IRP to address all the interrelated aspects of recent legislation. The Commission, however, cannot conclude, based on the record in this proceeding and issues discussed further below, that Dominion’s 2020 IRP, as filed, is reasonable and in the public interest for purposes of a planning document.
The Commission will meet on February 12 at 10 am and provide an opportunity for public testimony on the issues raised by the February 5 order (PUR-2020-00134 ). Those wishing to testify must register by February 10 (click here to register). For a copy of the SCC’s February 5 order, click here. For additional insights, click
