Do­min­ion wins ap­proval for sub­sta­tion, power line

The Washington Times Daily - - METRO -

State reg­u­la­tors have awarded ap­proval to Do­min­ion En­ergy for a hotly con­tested sub­sta­tion and power line to pro­vide elec­tric ser­vice for an Ama­zon data cen­ter in North­ern Vir­ginia.

The Rich­mond Times-Dis­patch re­ported that the State Cor­po­ra­tion Com­mis­sion gave fi­nal ap­proval last week.

The trans­mis­sion line will run from Gainesville to Hay­mar­ket and many res­i­dents along its pro­posed path have been stri­dently against it, ask­ing that Do­min­ion’s re­quest be de­nied or that the line be buried un­der­ground.

The com­mis­sion has said it would be too ex­pen­sive to bury the line.
