Construction Begins on Virginia Natural Gas-Fired Power Project

Greensville County Power Station

Dominion Virginia Power started construction on the 1,588-MW Greensville County Power Station in Virginia.

The Virginia Air Pollution Control Board approved the air permit June 17, which was the last regulatory hurdle that had to be cleared before construction could begin. In the first year of operation, the plant is expected to bring economic benefits of about $36 million a year and about 166 jobs.

Dominion began generating electricity from the 1,358-MW Brunswick County Power Station in April.
