("DEI"), its direct, wholly owned nonutility subsidiary (together, "Applicants"), both located at 120 Tredegar Street, Richmond, Virginia 23219, have filed an application-declaration under sections 6(a), 7, 9(a), 10, 12 (b) and (d) and 13 of the Act and rules 53 and 54.

DRI and DEI propose to organize and acquire Dominion Wholesale, Inc. ("DWI"), as a subsidiary of DEI to assist their nonutility electric generation and gas-related subsidiaries in the procurement, storage and maintenance of materials, machinery, equipment, services and supplies (the "Equipment") more cost effectively and, incidentally, to sell Equipment to unaffiliated third parties.

DRI and DEI have multiple subsidiaries, utility and nonutility, engaged in the generation of electricity.1 DRI and DEI state that DWI will provide (a) procurement, storage, maintenance and sales of Equipment to affiliated nonutility companies and (b) incidental sales of Equipment to unaffiliated third parties ("Inventory Services"). DEI will be the sole stockholder of DWI, acquiring all of its outstanding capital stock or other ownership interests directly. DEI would make an initial capital contribution to DWI of $1,000 and working capital needs of DWI would be funded through a combination of equity investments, capital advances or loans from DRI and/or DEI.

For the Commission, by the Division of Investment Management, pursuant to delegated authority.
