RICHMOND — The State Corporation Commission (SCC) is directing a reduction in the fuel rate for Dominion Virginia Power on an interim basis for usage on or after July 1. This reduction was recently requested by Dominion Virginia Power as part of an April 30, 2010 filing it made at the SCC requesting the SCC to re-set this utility’s fuel rate effective July 1, 2010. The fuel rate is the portion of the electric bill that pays for the fuel used to generate electricity and costs associated with power purchased by the utility company to serve its customers.
The new interim fuel rate of 2.803 cents per kilowatt-hour (¢/kWh) results in a reduction of $1.24 for a typical monthly bill for a customer who uses 1,000 kWh of electricity, to $98.36 from $99.60.
A public hearing on Dominion Virginia Power’s fuel rate filing is scheduled for 10 a.m. on Wednesday, September 8, 2010. 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.
Written comments on the proposal must be submitted by September 2, 2010. 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-2010-00042.
