Electricity Providers in Pennsylvania: Dominion Energy Solutions
Dominion began in 1909 as a formation of the Virginia Railway and Power Company. Over the next two decades, Dominion supplied light, power, and trolley car service and distributed natural gas. Now, the company is one of the leading energy producers in the nation and is home to the country's largest natural gas storage system.
As an electricity supplier for Pennsylvania, Dominion Energy Solutions offers electricity and natural gas at competitive prices. They pride themselves on their quality customer service which includes offering helpful tips and information and promptly responding to emergency events.
In 2001, Dominion began supporting Six Sigma, a popular business method developed by Motorola that helps reduce process efficiencies. Now, they use it to minimize safety accidents among employees, contractors, and the public.
They have also used it to conserve the earth's resources. The company replaced light bulbs and fixtures in its facilities, recycled over 10,000 wood reels and pallets that would have otherwise been disposed, minimized water and natural resource consumption, and reduced nuclear outage time.
Dominion has won several Six Sigma awards, including Six Sigma CEO of the Year, Best Improvement Program of the Year, and Deployment Leader of the Year.
