SCC Seeks Public Comments on Dominion Energy Virginia’s Integrated Resource Plan


MAY 24, 2023

RICHMOND – The State Corporation Commission (SCC) is offering time for members of the public to give oral comments by telephone on Dominion Energy Virginia’s 2023 Integrated Resource Plan (IRP). An IRP provides a forecast of an electric utility’s load obligations and a plan to meet those obligations by supply side and demand side resources over the next 15 years to promote reasonable prices, reliable service, energy independence, and environmental quality.

Dominion states in its filing that the IRP addresses the 2023 PJM Load Forecast, which includes a significant increase in the expected peak and energy demand in the Dominion Energy Zone.  According to the company, the increase is driven primarily by data centers and, to a lesser extent, electrification in both the company’s service territory and in other service areas within the Dominion Energy Zone
