Dominion Energy’s Haymarket-Gainesville 230-kilovolt power line project is far from settled.
Check out our earlier coverage of the project here.
While the State Corporation Commission (SCC) had decided earlier that the project could move forward, the SCC has now set a date for a new hearing to further determine the need for the project and whether Dominion will be able to move forward with the project.
The hearing will take place on February 8 in Richmond, and Dominion will be able to make their case to the SCC that the project needs to move forward.

And while Dominion has furnished documents and presented their arguments to the SCC as to the need for the project – “providing the most reliable electric service for our customers,” stated Dominion spokesman Greogry Mathe in an email – the SCC felt they had heard enough against the project to call for the new hearing
The SCC’s decision to originally call for the new hearing took place on December 6, and reversed the decision made earlier this year by the SCC.
Dominion will need to file all documentation and evidence to the SCC by January 5 and those opposing the project will need to do so by January 26.
