Dominion drops electric rates slightly Sept. 1

SEPT. 1, 12:05 A.M. – Electric rates are dropping today for Dominion Energy residential customers.

A typical 1,000 kilowatt-hour residential monthly bill will drop by $1.55 beginning today, due largely to a $2.07 reduction in transmission-related costs. The company is continuing to upgrade and modernize its transmission system, but transmission-related costs for residential customers decreased when compared to the previous year's total.

The decrease means that Dominion's typical monthly residential bill is 7 percent below the Virginia average and 15.9 percent below the national average, according to company officials.

The reduced rate is the result of adjustments in the portion of customer rates supporting the transmission system, as well as other bill modifications approved by the Virginia State Corporation Commission, effective today.

The changes will result in a bill for the typical Dominion customer dropping by 1.1. percent, from $117.20 to $115.65 – 30 cents lower than in February 2015, according to company officials.
