Division of Energy Regulation


The Division of Energy Regulation assists the SCC's three commissioners in regulating Virginia's investor-owned electric, natural gas, water and sewer utilities, and member-owned electric cooperatives. Its chief function is supporting the Commission in its goal to ensure Virginia consumers receive adequate utility services at just and reasonable rates.

While Virginia does not provide a wholly competitive energy market, options exist for alternative solutions for meeting energy needs. The Energy Regulation in Virginia section of the SCC site provides information on rate regulation, as well as competitive service and aggregation.
