RICHMOND — The State Corporation Commission
(SCC) will hold hearings on July 1 and August 19 to receive public testimony in
two cases involving rate increases proposed by Dominion Virginia Power (DVP).
The first request to be considered by the SCC in case PUE-2014-00021 is a proposed
rate adjustment to recover costs for electric transmission service provided to DVP
by a regional transmission entity. If approved, the monthly bill of a residential
customer using 1,000 kilowatt-hours per month would increase by $1.91, or approximately
1.7 percent. Public comments are due on June 24, 2014. A public hearing in Richmond
is scheduled for July 1 at 10 a.m.
In case PUE-2014-00033, the SCC will consider a request by DVP to increase the fuel
rate, the portion of the electric bill that pays for the cost of fuel used to generate
electricity and purchase power from other utilities and power producers.
The revised fuel rate of 3.018 cents per kilowatt-hour will be placed into effect
on an interim basis for usage on and after July 1, 2014. For the average residential
customer, the fuel rate increase means the monthly bill for 1,000 kilowatt-hours
of electricity will increase $4.46, or approximately 4.1 percent. Comments are due
on August 7, 2014. A hearing is scheduled for August 19 at 10 a.m.
The hearings will be held in the SCC’s courtroom on the second floor of the Tyler
Building, 1300 East Main Street in downtown Richmond. Persons wishing to comment
at the hearings should arrive early and notify the SCC bailiff.
Written comments on any of these requests may be sent to the Clerk of the State
Corporation Commission, Document Control Center, P.O. Box 2118, Richmond, Virginia
23218-2118. Please refer to the proper case number.
