SCC reschedules hearing on high-voltage transmission grid in Fauquier, Prince William


newspaperThe State Corporation Commission (SCC) has rescheduled a February 4 public hearing in Richmond to convene on April 20 regarding an application by Dominion Virginia Power to upgrade and improve various electric transmission facilities located in Fauquier and Prince William counties.

The company’s Warrenton-Wheeler reliability project involves new high-voltage line construction and the rebuilding and conversion of existing lines.

Any person wishing to comment at this hearing should arrive early and sign in with the SCC bailiff. The hearing will continue on April 21 at 10 a.m. to receive other evidence.

The deadline for written comments on the request has been extended to April 17, 2015. 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-2014-00025.
