Slight Rate Cuts For Dominion, Columbia

Customers of Dominion Virginia Power and Columbia Gas of Virginia are getting a break on rates. The State Corporation Commission has approved rate reductions for both utilities. The SCC ruled that Dominion must lower its base rate, taking about 11 cents off the average monthly electric bill. Action to adjust the cost of natural gas means the average Columbia customer will save about $10 a month.
