For the first time since 2015 Dominion Energy’s primary regulator, the State Corporation Commission (SCC), will fully review and potentially adjust what Dominion Energy customers pay for electricity. Through a regulatory process called the triennial review, also known as a rate case, the SCC will determine:

  • If and by how much the company overcharged customers.
  • If refunds are due to customers.
  • The amount of profit Dominion should earn in future years.
  • If there is going to be a rate increase or decrease.

After overcharging customers by hundreds of millions for years, Dominion has requested a significant profit increase that could cost customers billions more in additional charges. We cannot allow Dominion to keep squeezing every last penny out of Virginia families and small businesses. The State Corporation Commission must deny Dominion’s request and lawmakers must reform our utility regulations so that all Virginians can power their homes and businesses with clean and affordable energy. 

The public can participate right now in the 2021 Dominion rate case by signing the petition.
