Virginia power files to covert Bremo Power Station to natural gas


The Fluvanna Review reported in July of last year that the change was on the way.

In its application filed with the Virginia State Corporation Commission, Dominion noted that it had agreed to stop using coal and convert the 227-megawatt, two-unit power station by spring 2014 as part of the air permit for the company’s new Virginia City Hybrid Energy Center in Wise County, the newspaper said.

If the SCC approves the estimated $53.4 million conversion, the company would cease burning coal at Bremo in fall 2013, the paper said.
Bremo entered service in 1931, and the two units now in use were put into service in 1950 and 1958, respectively.

This would be the ninth company-owned, coal-fired power station announced in recent years with units to be closed or converted to alternative fuels.

During construction, the electric utility said, the conversion is expected to have an economic benefit to the state of about $7 million and create up to 42 new jobs. The station will have an annual economic impact of about $24 million once it is completed, according to the Times-Dispatch.
