1. Where can I learn more about Dominion Energy?
We are happy to have you as part of the Dominion Energy team. You can visit www.dominionenergy.com to learn more.
2. What are Dominion Energys Core Values?
Much like SCANA, Dominion Energy has core values that are at the heart of our business: Safety, Ethics, Excellence, and One Dominion Energy.
Safety: Safety is our highest priority in the workplace and in the community. The work we do can be dangerous. So our first and fundamental goal is to send every employee home safe and sound, every day with zero injuries. That is the only acceptable standard of performance.
Ethics: Integrity, individual responsibility and accountability go hand-in-hand with bottom-line results. We cannot and will not take shortcuts to achieve our goals and fulfill our obligations to stakeholders. Ethical behavior matters and our reputation depends on it.
Excellence: We set high performance standards and are committed to continuous improvement in all areas of our business. The odds of long-term success improve when we go beyond good and strive for great. Our aim is not to be the biggest energy company, just the best.
One Dominion Energy: Teamwork is at the heart of One Dominion Energy. It is a unifying outlook that transcends organizational boundaries and focuses on our shared mission and purpose. We know that strong, sustainable performance depends on how well we support each other in executing our business plan.

1. Will I become a Dominion Energy employee?
When the merger is completed, SCANA will become a wholly-owned subsidiary of Dominion Energy, and SCANA employees will become part of the Dominion Energy family.
2. When will the transition to Dominion Energy occur?
The merger between SCANA and Dominion Energy is subject to regulatory and shareholder approval. The date will depend on the receipt of those approvals.
3. Will my service with SCANA count as service towards Dominion Energy?
Your service with SCANA will count as time worked with Dominion Energy for purposes of our policies and programs.
4. Will we lose the SCANA name and logo?
We need to discuss this with the regulators. At the appropriate time, we prefer that you would use the Dominion Energy name and brand. It is important to our core value of One Dominion Energy.
5. How does my union contract apply after the merger?
Your collective bargaining agreement continues to govern your wages, benefits and other terms and conditions of employment after the merger. Changes to your collective bargaining agreement are generally subject to negotiations between your employer and your union.
6. The collective bargaining agreement with IBEW continues through January 31, 2020. Who will IBEW negotiate with for a new agreement in 2020?
The merger does not change the fact that the IBEW collective bargaining agreement is an agreement between IBEW and South Carolina Electric & Gas Company (SCE&G). SCE&G will continue to exist after the merger, and the union will continue to bargain with SCE&G after the merger closes. Subject to shareholder and regulatory approvals, we expect that the merger will close well before the collective bargaining agreement ends in 2020 and that SCE&G will be part of the Dominion Energy family at that time.
7. The collective bargaining agreement with ICW continues through December 2, 2022. Who will ICW negotiate with for a new agreement in 2022? (Update)
The merger does not change the fact that the ICW collective bargaining agreement is an agreement between ICW and the Public Service Company of North Carolina, Inc. (PSNC). PSNC will continue to exist after the merger, and the union will continue to bargain with PSNC after the merger closes. Subject to shareholder and regulatory approvals, we expect that the merger will close well before the collective bargaining agreement ends in 2022 and that PSNC will be part of the Dominion Energy family at that time.

8. What are Employee Resource Groups? Which ones do you have?
The company has launched an official Employee Resource Group program aimed at creating avenues where employees can engage, collaborate, network and contribute to company initiatives. We currently have 6 resource groups with multiple chapters across the footprint. They are:
We3: Women engaging, educating, energizing
DVN: Dominion Vets Network
AARG: African American Resource Group
HOLA!: Dominion Energy Latino Resource Group
Pride: LGBTQIA and Ally Resource Group
YP: Dominion Energy Young Professionals
9. Which healthcare insurance provider does Dominion Energy use?
We use Anthem Blue Cross Blue Shield for medical and Express Scripts for prescription drug benefits and have for many years. Dominion Energys health plans are self-funded.
10. Who should I contact if I have questions about my current benefits?
You should continue to contact the SCANA Employee Resource Center by calling 803-217-4444 or simply 7-4444 when dialing internally.
11. Does Dominion Energy have a 3-5-7 program or other bonus program?
Most Dominion Energy employees participate in the same Annual Incentive Program, which is based on financial performance of the company, and accomplishment of safety, diversity, and other operating and stewardship goals. Jobs are grouped into established tier levels with target awards determined as a percentage of an employees plan compensation (base or qualified earnings).
12. Are all linemen paid the same across states?
Dominion Energys Linemen currently work in offices located in Virginia and North Carolina. These Linemen are represented by IBEW Local 50 under one labor contract. Their rate of pay is the same; however, there is a wage supplement up to 10% for Lineman working in the Northern Virginia area to offset a higher cost of living.
13. Would employees receive all new uniforms?
The process and protocol for replacing existing uniforms with logos will be determined post close, but we can share that with previous mergers, uniforms bearing old logos were replaced with new uniforms displaying the Dominion Energy logo over time.
