A Dominion Resources Inc. unit was the highest bidder to develop a wind energy project 23 miles off the coast of Virginia Beach, offering $1.6 million for a federal lease to install turbines that could generate as much as 2 gigawatts of power.
A Dominion Resources Inc. nuclear power plant in Virginia may have been subjected to ground motion greater than it was designed to withstand in last week’s earthquake, the Nuclear Regulatory Commission said.
The earthquake that rattled Dominion Resources Inc.’s North Anna power station is renewing a 40-year- old debate over whether a nuclear plant should be built over a dormant fault line there, threatening the company’s plans for a third reactor at the site.
Dominion Resources Inc.’s reactors at its North Anna plant, rattled by an August earthquake, may resume full operation within 10 days after the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission deemed the units safe, the company said.
The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission told Dominion Resources Inc. that it won’t let the North Anna reactors restart after last month’s earthquake until the agency is confident operations would be safe.
