Dominion raises rates for infrastructure costs

RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) - When you get your power back, you'll be paying more for it.

A rate increase for Dominion went into effect Thursday.

Dominion says your monthly bill will go up about $3.50 per bill.

The rate increase is to pay for replacing aging equipment, adding new infrastructure, and covering the costs of services for the regional grid operator.
