Dominion requests 3-month deferral in Varina substation case

A Dominion Virginia Power rendering shows what the view of power lines might look like from Osborne Turnpike if a substation were built 725 feet back from the road.
UPDATE: MAY 23, 1:50 P.M. – Plans for a Dominion Virginia Power substation in Varina could be delayed for three more months, after company officials today requested a deferral of their scheduled June 9 case before the Henrico Planning Commission.

The company is seeking to build a substation in Varina to improve service reliability in the region and wants to locate it on a 1.5-acre portion of a 10-acre site at 7000 Osborne Turnpike.

Company officials now are asking that the case be delayed until September so that they may consider input they received during a public meeting May 17 at Varina High School. Specifically, they intend to consider the possibility of purchasing a portion of an adjacent 477-acre parcel on Osborne Turnpike, which was listed for sale recently. Several speakers at last week's meeting urged Dominion representatives to consider that option.
