Alliance Letter to the Virginia State Corporation Commission Regarding the Role of CHP and WHP in Dominion’s Integrated Resource Planning

Today, the Alliance submitted a letter regarding Dominion Energy’s Integrated Resource Plan (IRP) for 2018 and the role of CHP and WHP in Dominion’s next IRP to be released in 2020. The Grid Transformation and Security Act of 2018 (SB 966) directs Dominion Energy to consider deploying 200 MW of CHP and WHP over the next five years in its next integrated resource plan filed after July 1, 2018. While the 2018 IRP (released in May) does not include CHP, we look forward to the subsequent plans, which we expect to consider CHP as either a demand-side energy efficiency measure of a supply-side generation alternative in accordance with SB 966. Doing so will offer a range of benefits to Dominion Energy, its customers, and the environment.
