The 585 MW Virginia City Hybrid Energy Center, a Dominion-owned power plant that can burn both coal and biomass, is offline for a scheduled maintenance period, according to a report from the Bristol Herald Courier.
Dominion (NYSE: D) Spokesman Greg Edwards told the Herald Courier will be going through maintenance checks through early or mid-May. The maintenance work is being performed by facility employees as well as additional workers brought in under contract.
