    Dominion Virginia Power customers may notice a higher amount due on their next bill.

    The State Corporation Commission approved a fuel rate request by the power company. It goes into effect this Friday, July 1.

    The average increase breaks down like this: $4.86 for 1,000 kilowatt hours of electricity. That’s an average bill of $108.77.

    Dominion said it needs the rate hike to offset rising fuel prices, and to make up for last year's harsher-than-normal summer and winter.
