Fewer power outages in Virginians’ future

Dominion

RICHMOND, Va. (WTVR) – Dominion Virginia Power is considering taking steps to reduce your chances of losing electricity during a storm.

Dominion Virginia Power Spokesman Karl Neddenien says a new study indicates that burying 20% of underground power lines in troubled spots that usually experience outages will help reduce future power outages during storms by 63%.

Neddenien says the plan is only in the preliminary stages. Dominion Virginia Power doesn’t know yet in which neighborhoods they’ll start work or how much it will cost.
