RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) - The Virginia Senate passes a Dominion Energy-backed bill that means you'll be getting some money back.

The bill would immediately issue customers $200 million in refunds because of excessive profits for the utility. Dominion would also be allowed to divert some of its excess profits to pay for projects - like upgrading the state's electrical grid.

State regulators complain it won't be able to evaluate whether these "projects" are cost-effective. The bill has the governor's support.
