"Revenue fell about 4 percent to $3.8 billion as higher rates helped offset declines in electricity usage. " See, energy conservation will only drive the rates higher.

Dominion is a great neighbor but I hope the NRC takes it's time on deciding whether to allow them to put unit's 1 & 2 back on line at the North Anna Nuclear Power Plant. Aftershocks continue and I can't help but wonder what kind of a toll it is taking on concrete that's 40 years old. In the long run they will raise rates to cover the lost revenue from the shutdown and we will have to pay more. Isn't that better than killing a bunch of people because the go ahead to start up was given too early? I think so!

The 3rd quarter profit loss will not mean the top man will take a smaller bonus check. He will take his share and the working grunts will get nothing, not even a handshake. Lets not forget his other cronies waiting for their handout. Corporations are people right ??

and to transmission it
charge me the fuel (nuclear is included in the cost)
charge me a sales and consumption
then albemarle has charge me 4 bucks to get power

Who would have guessed Dominion doesn't have earthquake insurance because they have built-in coverage....ratepayers they can stick the bill to cover their substandard construction which couldn't withstand quakes.
