RICHMOND, Va. (CBS19 NEWS) -- Domination Energy Virginia has asked for a new rate adjustment clause, and the State Corporation Commission will be holding a hearing on it later this year.
According to a release, the clause is aimed at recovering costs incurred in compliance with state and federal environmental regulations.
It proposes a revenue requirement of $113.6 million during the 2019 rate year, from Nov. 1, 2019 to Oct. 30, 2020, to fund environmental projects at four of the company's power stations across the Commonwealth.
Dominion says this rider would increase the monthly bill of an average residential customer using 1,000-kilowatt hours a month by about $2.15.
There will be a public hearing on this clause on June 11 at 10 a.m. in the SCC's courtroom in the Tyler Building on East Main Street in Richmond.
People can submit written comments on this by June 4, which can be mailed to the Clerk of the State Corporation Commission, Document Control Center, P.O. Box 2118, Richmond, VA 23218-2118 with the case number PUR-2018-00195.
