Energy Regulation

The 2007 General Assembly passed legislation (Senate Bill 1416 and House Bill 3068) re-establishing retail rate regulation for most of the electricity customers in the Commonwealth.

Electricity customers with annual demands greater than five megawatts have the option to shop for competitive electricity supply. 

The 2007 legislation continued the policy to allow retail customers of Virginia’s two largest gas companies, Columbia Gas and Washington Gas Light, to select other companies to provide their gas supply service.
