Dominion 'welcomes' Millstone Power Station agreement
Dominion Energy said it welcomes today's agreement and "appreciates Governor Lamont and his administration's leadership on an issue vital to Connecticut's economy and environment." The contract is for 10 years, 9 million megawatt hours per year, and ensures Millstone Power Station will provide round-the-clock, carbon-free electricity that helps the state fulfill carbon-reduction goals, the company said. It also represents significant savings for Connecticut residents and guarantees well-paying jobs and substantial state-and-local economic contributions, it added. "This is a huge win for Connecticut, the region, and our colleagues at Millstone," said Paul Koonce, President & CEO Power Generation Group. "Not only does this preserve the vast majority of Connecticut's carbon-free electricity, it preserves good jobs for the 1,500 women and men who work at Millstone and keeps 4,000 other residents employed."
