Artist's rendering of the proposed stationDominion Virginia Power received permission from the Virginia State Corporation Commission on Aug. 2, 2013, to construct a 1,358-megawatt, natural gas fueled power station near Lawrenceville in Brunswick County. The combined cycle, natural gas-fired power station will serve growing customer demand and replace electricity from aging coal-fired power stations that are being retired for economic and environmental reasons.

Dominion plans to start construction immediately with commercial service expected to begin in the summer of 2016.
