In 1980, Dominion Resources, Inc., was incorporated as the holding company for VEPCO. For us ratepayers on the ground Virginia Electric and Power Company became Dominion.

Dominion came through the Woolen Mills recently, whacking trees. Line maintenance. They provide the power that I post by here. But what is the price of the power?

North Anna, James

Is it possible for a monopoly to be true to its place of origin? To care about cultural and natural resources? To care about the environment? Here recently, the corporation has been in the news, often. From the outside they’ve been acting more like the Dominator than the Virginian. Atlantic Coast Pipeline. Transmission lines over the James River. New nuclear facility on a faultline.

political clout

Yesterday, people from across Virginia came to speak to the dominator. To date, there is little indication that Dominion has ears.

Changes in process at Monticello this year caught me unawares so I wasn’t on the mountain for the naturalization, the national birthday party or Dave Matthews talk. Bicycled up after all the guests had departed. Walked around the garden.
