TITLE

Oral Presentation by Dominion Energy Virginia Regarding their Proposed 230KV Line Project in Alexandria.

BODY

_________________________________________________________________

 

Since 2014, Dominion Energy Virginia (“Dominion”) has been considering a transmission project to address their forecasted capacity overload in the Alexandria-Arlington area. Most, but not all, alternatives have focused on Dominion building a high voltage (230 kilovolts or “230kV”) underground transmission line from the former NRG Potomac River Generation site in North Old Town to an existing Dominion substation on Four Mile Run in South Arlington. The project has been intended to also include the moving of the Dominion temporary transmission station facility currently located in the North Potomac Yard Retail Center to the South Arlington substation as well as the elimination of elevated transmission structures that connect to the temporary Potomac Yard Dominion facility. Since Council’s last actions on May 12, 2018, Dominion has been reviewing the transmission project options and indicates it will be ready to report the results of its review to Council on September 25.

 

If Dominion provides City staff with materials before the Council meeting on September 25, staff will forward those materials to Council, as well as post those materials online with the September 25 docket.
