Dominion Engages Stakeholders to Develop Long Range Energy Plan: VACo Participating

On March 28, Dominion Virginia Energy held an initial meeting of stakeholders who will provide input in their next Integrated Resource Plan (IRP) to be filed with the Virginia State Corporation Commission (SCC) later this year. The IRP is a long-range planning document that looks at providing energy reliability over a 15-year timeframe.

The stakeholder review process is a new requirement enacted by the Virginia General Assembly in 2023 that investor-owned utilities (IOUs) must now follow when submitting IRPs. VACo was in attendance and will be participating throughout the spring and summer in smaller facilitated workgroup discussions. Topics identified by stakeholders at the initial meeting that the workgroups will tackle include the following: energy demand forecasts, data center growth, transmission planning, renewable energy, energy efficiency, reliability and impacts on rural communities. This set of slides provided to VACo from Dominion provides a helpful overview and explanation of the IRP process for engaging stakeholders.
