Dominion Energy North Carolina
Tuesday, November 12, 2019, 1:30 pm
Commission Hearing Room 2115, Dobbs Building
430 North Salisbury, Raleigh, NC

The Commission will hold three hearings, back to back, on whether to approve three separate requests from Dominion Energy North Carolina (DENC), for electricity price changes. DENC filed the requests on August 14, 2019. By law, DENC can request price changes once a year for the following kinds of costs:


  • Fuel and fuel-related costs
  • Costs of programs that save energy or shift the timing of electricity use
  • Costs for renewable energy


(In a separate proceeding, DENC has requested permission to increase its base electric rates. That request is pending in Docket No. E-22 Sub 562.)

The chart below shows the monthly impact for residential customers of these three price changes. To see all of the documents for one of the proceedings, including details of each DENC proposal, click on the docket number in the chart below.
