  37. 37. Dominion Resources Inc. says if it doesnt build a third nuclear reactor at its North Anna Power Station, it will need tobuild another power generation source in its place.CEO Thomas F. Farrell II spoke Tuesday at the Bank of America Merrill Lynch Power ; Gas Leaders Conference inNew York about the potential reactor at the central Virginia plant.Farrell said the company is looking for a partner to build the third nuclear reactor, but isnt going to build it itself rightnow. Dominion announced in May that it selected Mitsubishi Heavy Industrys Advanced Pressurized Water Reactortechnology for the potential unitIf it decides to go forward with the reactor, the Richmond-based energy company must first get approval from theNuclear Regulatory Commission and the Virginia State Corporation Commission.Farrell said that if the company doesnt build the reactor, Dominion would have to find another source for the 1,300megawatts of electricity the reactor would have produced.He also said Dominion plans to spend about $10 billion in growth capital expenditures for generation, transmissionand distribution between 2011 and 2015. That doesnt include about $3.6 billion for projects like the third nuclearreactor, its replacement, or certain gas transmission growth projects under development.http://nuclearstreet.com/nuclear_power_industry_news/b/nuclear_power_news/archive/2010/09/30/bloomberg_3a00_-dominion-discusses-future-north-anna-nuclear-plant-_1320_-unit-3-093004.aspxM&A Activity (May include a discussion about Goodwill) (Are they purchasing other corporations?)Thomas FarrellGood morning, everyone, and thank you for joining us. While we typically do not discuss issuesrelated to M&A, I want to make a couple of comments, given market rumors regardingDominions interest in merging with or acquiring other utilities. As anyone familiar with ourcompany knows, Dominion has a very strong organic growth plan. We are investing over $2billion a year in growth projects across all of our regulated lines of business. Achieving our 5%to 6% earnings growth targets does not depend on our ability to make acquisitions. If we were toconsider an M&A transaction, it would have to be a unique opportunity that would not weakenour financial condition and would be accretive to earnings per share and shareholder value.http://seekingalpha.com/article/249434-dominion-resources-ceo-discusses-q4-2010-results-earnings-call-transcriptStrategic Position: Industry / Annual Reports letters from the Chairman/CEO.
