RICHMOND — The State Corporation Commission (SCC) will hold a public hearing on June 18, 2013, on a request by Dominion Virginia Power (DVP) for an increase in its fuel factor. The company says the increase is necessary to cover the higher costs of fuel used to generate electricity.

DVP seeks to increase its fuel factor by 0.236 cents per kilowatt-hour (¢/kWh) from 2.706¢/kWh to 2.942¢/kWh. The proposed fuel factor would increase the average monthly bill of a typical residential customer using 1,000 kWh of electricity by $2.36, or approximately 2.2 percent.

A public hearing on the request is scheduled for 10 a.m. on Tuesday, June 18, 2013. It will be held in the Commission’s second floor courtroom located in the Tyler Building, 1300 East Main Street, in downtown Richmond. Any person wishing to comment at the hearing should arrive early and notify the SCC bailiff.

The SCC will webcast the audio portion of this hearing via the Internet. Instructions for listening to the proceeding can be found on the SCC website at

Written comments on the proposal must be submitted by June 11, 2013. All correspondence should be sent to the Clerk of the State Corporation Commission, Document Control Center, P.O. Box 2118, Richmond, Virginia 23218-2118, and refer to case number PUE-2013-00042.
