Dominion Joins DOE Effort To Promote Workplace Charging For Electric Vehicles

RICHMOND, Va., July 2, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Dominion is one of the first 48 companies in the nation to join the U.S. Department of Energy's Workplace Charging Challenge, which is designed to help increase the number of U.S. employers offering workplace charging for electric vehicles.

Earlier this year, Dominion installed two separately metered electric vehicle charging stations as a pilot program at its Tredegar campus in downtown Richmond. The stations have two lockable power outlets used by employees who pay a monthly fee that covers the cost of electricity and gradually reimburses the company for the installation. The pilot also will test the meter's capability to control charging during peak demand hours remotely.

"A significant number of electric and plug-in hybrid vehicles have been sold over the past year, and workplace charging will be critical to supporting continued growth," said Mary Doswell, senior vice president-Alternative Energy Solutions. "By joining the DOE program, we are signifying our intent to assess the possibility of expanding employee workplace charging beyond the Tredegar campus, while also sharing our expertise and serving as a model for other organizations."

The DOE began its Workplace Charging Challenge in January. Today, each of the 48 companies around the nation has committed to having at least one worksite provide electric vehicle charging. The initiative will help increase the convenience of owning an electric vehicle and provide employees with more options for charging their cars.

Dominion (NYSE: D) is one of the nation's largest producers and transporters of energy, with a portfolio of approximately 27,000 megawatts of generation. Dominion operates one of the nation's largest natural gas storage systems and serves retail energy customers in 15 states.
