Strategic Impact

With the proceeds from the concluded sale, Dominion Energy will be looking to decrease its parent-level debt, including retiring the 364-day term loan that was taken in July, which Dominion Energy previously used to repay an approximately $1.3 billion transaction deposit made by Berkshire Hathaway Energy.

Further, the proceeds will be utilized to lend strength to Dominion’s capital plan.
