Delmarva Power Completes Sale of Virginia Operations

01/02/2008 3:10 PM ET

EXMORE, Va.- Delmarva Power on Wednesday transferred control of its Virginia operations to A&N Electric Cooperative and Old Dominion Electric Cooperative.

According to the utility, this completed an approximately $44 million transaction that was approved by the Virginia State Corporation Commission and the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission.

Under terms of the sale, A&N Electric Cooperative will acquire all of Delmarva Power's distribution assets as well as other related assets in Virginia.

Delmarva Power will continue to own and operate the 138kV (kilovolt) and 69 kV transmission lines near the border of Maryland and Virginia. Old Dominion Electric Cooperative will own and operate the remainder of the Virginia transmission assets.

Conectiv Energy will continue to own and operate the generation facilities located in Bayview and Tasley.

According to Delmarva Power, there were no layoffs of its Virginia employees as a result of these transactions. Delmarva Power offered positions at locations in Maryland and Delaware to its management and union employees who currently work in Virginia. Those employees who have chosen to stay with Delmarva Power will move to their new jobs this month. Some Delmarva Power employees opted to work for A&N Electric Cooperative.

"This transaction enables Delmarva Power to focus on Maryland and Delaware where the majority of our customers reside," said Gary Stockbridge, president of Delmarva Power. 

The original electric service provider on Virginia's Eastern Shore was Eastern Shore Public Service Company, which was acquired by Delaware Power & Light in 1943. Delaware Power & Light changed its name to Delmarva Power & Light in 1966. The company shortened its corporate signature to Delmarva Power in 1972. Until today, Delmarva Power had served approximately 22,000 customers in Virginia.

A&N Electric Cooperative was incorporated in 1940 and is a not-for-profit, member-owned energy provider with headquarters in Tasley, Va. A&N Electric Cooperative will now serve approximately 33,000 customers in Accomack and Northampton counties in Virginia and Somerset County, Md.
