Va. regs say 10 percent power reduction possible

The State Corporation Commission says Virginia's goal reducing electricity consumption by 10 percent by lowering demand and improving efficiency is realistic.

RICHMOND, Va. —

The State Corporation Commission says Virginia's goal reducing electricity consumption by 10 percent by lowering demand and improving efficiency is realistic.

The General Assembly passed legislation earlier this year requiring the report, which the SCC submitted to the legislature and Gov. Tim Kaine on Monday.

The commission says reductions in consumption through demand-side management programs offered by Dominion Virginia Power, Appalachian Power and Kentucky Utilities are possible but could cost ratepayers more. The SCC says it's not recommending specific programs or technologies, but expects the utilities to work toward the goal and will evaluate proposals on a case-by-case basis.
