RICHMOND — The State Corporation Commission (SCC) will hold a public hearing on June 8, 2011,
on a request by Dominion Virginia Power (DVP) to offer two experimental and voluntary rate options
for residential customers who own or lease electric vehicles.
According to DVP, the pilot program will offer time-of-day pricing options to encourage off-peak
charging of electric vehicles. One option is for charging the electric vehicle only. The second option
applies to the customer’s entire service, including the house and the electric vehicle.
The company anticipates that by 2013 more than 5,000 electric vehicles will be on the road in
DVP’s service territory. By 2020 that number may grow to more than 86,000 according to DVP.
A public hearing on the request is scheduled for 10 a.m. on Wednesday, June 8, 2011. It will be held
in the Commission’s second floor courtroom located in the Tyler Building, 1300 East Main Street, in
downtown Richmond. Any person wishing to comment at the hearing should arrive early and notify
the SCC bailiff. The audio of the Richmond hearing will be webcast via the SCC website.
Written comments on the proposals must be submitted by June 1, 2011. All correspondence should
be sent to the Clerk of the State Corporation Commission, Document Control Center, P.O. Box 2118,
