Not table pounding or shouting. Planning. Permitting. And then building.
RICHMOND, March 31 — Dominion Virginia Power’s plan to build a coal-burning power plant in southwest Virginia cleared a major hurdle Monday when it was approved by the State Corporation Commission, despite objections from environmentalists.
Dominion is pushing to build the $1.8 billion plant in Wise County, in Virginia’s coal country, as part of a multi-pronged strategy for meeting the state’s growing demand for electricity.
Dominion, which has 2.3 million customers in the state, said the plant would be “one of the cleanest” coal-fired facilities in the nation because it would have a sophisticated emissions-control system.
