Dominion to host June 18 & June 20 meetings on plans to rebuild and upgrade transmission lines

Dominion Energy will hold two community meetings this week - Tuesday in Stafford and Thursday in Dumfries - to explain plans to to continue providing “reliable electric service.”

The plan is a rebuild of the electric transmission lines that run between Dominion’s Possum Point Substation in Dumfries and its Fredericksburg Substation because the lines “are at the end of their service life.”

At the same time, Dominion plans to upgrade the line - from 115 kilovolts (kV) to 230 kV. This will increase the current capacity for increased energy demand in the area and will include reconductoring, or replacing the wires, and replacing existing structures.

The Dominion news release said the information will be the same at both meetings, so residents can attend whichever is more convenient. There will be no formal presentation, so residents are invited to stop by at any time during either meeting:

Tuesday, June 18, 2024
5 to 7 p.m.
Shirley C. Heim Middle School
320 Telegraph Road
Stafford, VA 22554 and

Thursday, June 20, 2024
5 to 7 p.m.

Dominion originally announced this project in February 2023. Since then, its team has re-evaluated engineering needs, and this project will now be built in two phases.

Phase 1 will rebuild the existing transmission corridor, mostly within the existing right of way, between the Fredericksburg Substation in the City of Fredericksburg and the Aquia Harbour Substation in Stafford County.  Dominion Energy said it filed an application for Phase 1 with Virginia’s State Corporation Commission (SCC) three months ago, in March.

Phase 2 will rebuild the existing transmission corridor between the Aquia Harbour Substation in Stafford County and the Possum Point Substation in Prince William County. The conceptual engineering phase of Phase 2 is in progress and the community will be invited to learn more at an upcoming in-person community meetings:
