1 Dominion Update November

2 Dominion: In Virginia Headquartered in Virginia  More than 9,000 employees in the Commonwealth  Annual Virginia payroll of more than $1 billion  Recent Chmura study estimates Dominion generation projects produce $3.3 billion in economic benefits for Virginia  More than 73,000 Virginia shareholders  Total non-income tax payments in Virginia in 2010: $406 million  One of the largest taxpayers in Virginia Major Generating Facilities in Virginia and West Virginia Mt.

4 Upcoming Energy Gap * Peak demand growth: PJM long-range forecast, January 2011 ** New generation (1,165 MW total): 580 MW – Bear Garden operational May MW – VCHEC operational summer 2012 Generating capacity (as of Jan. 1, 2011) Expected peak demand*  Virginia is the 2 nd largest importer of electricity among the states: existing capacity is well below peak demand  “ Powering Virginia ” strategy provides energy roadmap for providing Virginia's energy needs  New generation to meet growing demands for 4,500 additional MW * (1165 MW of generation newly operational or under construction) 4 4,500 MW by 2021 New generation (1,165 MW**)

5 Provision Re- Regulation Traditional Cost of Service Gives SCC Authority to Set Rates  Ensures Customer Refunds for Prior Period Excess Earnings  X Promotes Jobs in Virginia  X Keeps VA Utilities Competitive in Accessing Capital  ? Avoids Construction “Rate Shock”  X Promotes efficiency and customer service through incentives/penalties  X Promotes Renewable Energy  X Sets Conservation Goal  X 13 Comparing Re-Regulation Act and Traditional Cost of Service Provisions 5

6 Chmura Study: Additional Benefits of “Powering Virginia” oConstruction phase ( ) supports total of 14,220 jobs, produces $3.3 billion in economic benefits in Virginia* oBeginning in 2015: total annual economic impact of ongoing operations estimated to be $291.8 million, supporting an annual average of approximately 750 jobs in Virginia 6 Construction Phase: Jobs by Year * Study does not include all projects in IRP.

7 2011 Integrated Resource Plan Investments o2 major combined cycle natural gas facilities – in addition to Bear Garden and Warren County ( ~ 1900 MW combined) recently built or announced oNew gas-powered combustion turbines (peaking units) oNew renewable initiatives (3 biomass conversions, Halifax solar, distributed solar) oExpanded energy efficiency/demand reduction programs oPreservation of option to build NA3 oAdditional environmental control equipment being evaluated oContinued transmission and distribution investment 7

8 (R) - Project subject to VA State Corporation Commission rate rider approval under Virginia Re-regulation Plan. *Nuclear values based on guaranteed maximum output (winter conditions) for turbine uprates.**North Anna 3 Update: Slow development of the third reactor: continue to work on obtaining a combined operating license (COL), incorporating US-APWR, along with engineering and preliminary site development work; reassess a schedule for construction as approach issuance of the COL.. Regulated Generation Infrastructure Investment 8

9 IRP: Likely Unit Conversions/Closures/Retrofits oCoal-fired unit closures in the plan Chesapeake units 1 and 2, scheduled by 2015 Chesapeake units 3 and 4, scheduled by 2016 Yorktown unit 1, scheduled by 2015 oCoal-fired unit conversions in the plan Yorktown unit 2, gas conversion scheduled by 2015 Bremo, 2 units, gas conversion scheduled in 2014 (previously announced) Altavista, Hopewell, Southampton, biomass conversion scheduled by end of (previously announced) oAdditional retrofits may be needed at other units 9
