In a deregulated energy market where "new" can be applied to just about every company, say hello to a granddaddy – Dominion energy in OH. Its roots, through predecessor companies, go all the way back to the time when rivers, not interstates, were the primary transportation corridors and operating a dam was a much bigger deal. In fact, Dominion began in 1795 with the construction of dams along the Appomattox River for industrial use – the use of hydropower before anybody ever talked about renewable energy.
Jump ahead more than 200 years, and the current Dominion is a mature company with a lot of offspring. In 2009, it was ranked No. 157 on the Fortune 500. The company portfolio includes highlights such as:

The company has a $20-plus million annual philanthropic giving program that includes contributions to: food banks during the holidays as well as the rest of the year; homeless shelters; habitat and land preservation; neighborhood revitalization; and education in the areas of math, science, engineering and technology. Programs that concentrate on energy conservation or efficiency are also a focus. Company employees contribute thousands of volunteer hours to charities and community programs in the towns and cities where they work.
