Dominion Retail has, from time to time, considered offering green power to residential customers. We chose not to in the Cape Cod area because there are other companies serving those who choose to pay more for green power.
Instead, we chose to compete for those customers who otherwise would be paying the highest price for electricity in the state of Massachusetts.
However, we disagree with any insinuation that our power is "dirtier" than other power provided to the Cape. The power we provide comes from the same sources as the other companies provide, with the exception of those offering green power.
All of Dominion is proud of the improvements our sister company has made at Brayton Power Station. Since purchasing it last year, Dominion has already spent $125 million to reduce its emissions, and more improvements are planned.
By purchasing Dominion power, you will be patronizing a company that is working to clean up the local environment through air quality improvements at Brayton Point Power Station.
Dominion is one of the nation's largest energy companies and the largest generator of electricity in New England. We have residential customers in eight states, including 4 million franchise energy customers and 1.4 million customer accounts in deregulated energy and associated products and services.
Dominion is, and will continue to be, a contributing member of the Cape Cod community, partly by providing a choice for customers concerned about high energy prices.
