Virginia Power emerged the winner in a lawsuit filed by an independent power producer (IPP), Doswell Limited Partnership, involving payments for wholesale electricity. The disputed payments total more than $100 million over a 25-year contract. Doswell owns a large nonutility power plant north of Richmond, VA, with a capacity of 726 megawatts, and sells electricity to Virginia Power. A portion of the IPP contract is based on a fixed
fuel-transportation charge for natural gas supplies.
