Dominion Resources (D) is an electric and natural gas utility. Dominion Resources has approximately 26,500 megawatts (MW) of electrical generating capacity, enough to power around 20 million homes. As the owner of the nation's largest underground natural gas storage system, Dominion also delivers natural gas to retail customers in eleven states.
Dominion Resources, with its easy access to cheap coal in Virginia, generates over 40% of its energy from burning coal. Like other electric utilities Dominion is under increasing political pressure to adopt cleaner electricity generation methods while maintaining competitive prices. Dominion Resources is also investing in clean energy projects such as wind farms and the conversion of some of its coal plants to cleaner, gas powered plants. Nuclear power already constitutes over 21% of Dominion Resources' generation capacity.(Read more at Wikinvest )
