Dominion Energy

CorporateHistory.net provided us with more than a retelling of our 100-year history—they helped us produce an engaging story that captures in print and pictures the people, places, and essence of our company.

Patty Wilkerson, Vice President and Corporate Secretary (Retired), Dominion Resources, Inc., Richmond, VA

First-hand recollections, photos, and artifacts shared by present and past employees bring this well-researched and colorfully illustrated volume to life. As Dominion’s first full narrative history, it shows how the company has evolved and expanded beyond its traditional Southern footprint to become an American energy leader—one that has invested billions of dollars in environmental and technological advances. Ultimately, Dominion’s First Century celebrates how the people of the company have served its many stakeholders by applying the time-tested values of safety, ethics, excellence, and teamwork.
