Dominion Energy Virginia customers now have a new way to help them with energy costs and make their homes more energy-efficient by following the recommendations from Dominion's Home Energy Assessment Program. It's a free program you can register for that might help take the bite out of high energy bills.

Your home may be costing you a lot of money that you're not aware of, but you won't know until you have your home's energy usage assessed. That's when Coggin Electric, a Dominion Energy certified contractor, will arrive by appointment at no charge to you and make their assessment. 

Coggin Electric - Meeting and Surpassing Your Needs

Coggin Electric grew from its humble beginnings over thirty years ago in Surry. It evolved into an electrical specialist powerhouse in the Surry, Smithfield, Williamsburg, Richmond, and Hampton Roads areas, with additional coverage in North Carolina.

It's their fast and friendly service that made them the preeminent electrical specialist company in the eyes of a large swath of people in the eastern US. From their 24-hour electrical repair service to their work for beloved landmarks like the Isle of Wight Courthouse and the Smithfield Center, they earned the right to represent Dominion Energy as a Qualified Participating Contractor.


As a qualified contractor for Dominion Energy Virginia's Home Energy Assessment Program, Coggin Electric conducts a 30-60 minute home walkthrough. During your home visit, a Coggin Electric professional will install energy-saving LED bulbs and water heater pipe insulation that add to your savings. 

While at your home, they will look for and advise you of other energy-savings opportunities that may require the work of additional contractors scheduled for a later time. These opportunities may include services like: 

  • A thorough tune-up of your heat pump

  • Insulating and sealing your heat pump system, and your central air conditioning unit

  • Where applicable, they may discuss with you options to upgrade your heat pump system and an upgrade to a heat pump water heater

  • Replacement of your electronically controlled fan motor (ECM) on your heat pump system and central air conditioning

  • Installation of a cool roof. This type of roof reflects more sunlight and absorbs less heat than conventional roof designs


They'll already have what they need with them when they arrive. No delay. Nice.
