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.
