14:37 EDTDDominion Voltage awarded U.S. patent for conservation voltage reduction
Dominion Voltage, a Dominion (D) company, has been awarded a patent for its EDGE technology that enables electric utilities to plan, manage and validate voltage conservation for grid optimization. The title of the patent from the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office is "Voltage Conservation Using Advanced Metering Infrastructure (AMI) and Substation Centralized Voltage Control." The company says EDGE can result in reducing the customer's electric bill by 3%-5% with no change in the customer's behavior, compared with savings of 1%-1.5% through traditional voltage conservation programs.

08:40 EDTDDominion begins construction activities for Cove Point LNG export project
Dominion has begun construction-related activities for the Cove Point Liquefied Natural Gas Export project. Leopold noted that the project underwent a comprehensive three-year regulatory review and approval process designed to ensure the project meets all safety, environmental and other requirements. Construction activities have begun at the LNG terminal with initial preparations for worksite clearing and grading. Activities were initiated earlier this month at two off-site locations, a temporary pier being built on the Pautuxent River to receive barge shipments of large equipment and a temporary location for offices, material staging and parking for project construction workers. The Cove Point LNG Export project is estimated to cost between $3.4 billion and $3.8 billion and will create thousands of skilled construction jobs, 75 permanent jobs and an additional $40 million in annual tax revenue to Calvert County. The county today receives $15.7 million a year from the LNG import facility. The proposed export facility will be within the 131-acre footprint of the existing LNG terminal site. No new pipelines or storage tanks are needed at the facility. It is targeted to begin operations in late 2017.
