Dominion Energy has filed its plans with the Virginia State Corporation Commission for approval to construct the 2.6GW Coastal Virginia Offshore Wind (CVOW) commercial project.
As part of the filing, Dominion Energy is also requesting State Corporation Commission approval to build approximately 17 miles of new transmission lines and other onshore infrastructure needed. A proposed transmission interconnection route is presented along with alternatives for the Commission to consider. The proposed route would be the shortest of the potential routes and would impact private property the least, with 92 percent of the route located within the former Southeastern Parkway and Greenbelt corridor, owned primarily by the City of Virginia Beach and/or collocated with existing Dominion Energy transmission line corridors.
