Dominion Resources Inc. has become Dominion Energy Inc. after a vote by shareholders to change the company’s name.

“While our name may be changing, what is not changing is our commitment to safety, customer service and our communities,” said Thomas F. Farrell II, chairman, president and chief executive officer of Dominion Energy.

“Our 16,200 employees remain dedicated to meeting the needs of our 6 million customers and others who depend on us. This new name is reflective of that dedication. Energy is at the core of our modern life.”
