Factors that may cause actual results to differ are often presented with the forward-looking statements themselves.

These factors include but are not limited to: • Unusual weather conditions and their effect on energy sales to customers and

energy commodity prices;

• Extreme weather events and other natural disasters, including, but not limited

   to, hurricanes, high winds, severe storms, earthquakes, flooding, climate
   changes and changes in water temperatures and availability that can cause

Results of Operations

Presented below is a summary of Dominion Energy's consolidated results:

                                                     2022        2021       $ Change
(millions, except EPS)
Second Quarter
Net income (loss) attributable to Dominion Energy   $  (453 )   $   285     $    (738 )
Diluted EPS                                           (0.58 )      0.33         (0.91 )

Year-To-Date

Net income attributable to Dominion Energy          $   258     $ 1,293     $  (1,035 )
Diluted EPS                                            0.25        1.56         (1.31 )


Overview

Second Quarter 2022 vs. 2021 Net income attributable to Dominion Energy decreased $738 million, primarily due to a loss associated with the sale of Kewaunee, a decrease in net investment earnings on nuclear decommissioning trust funds, a charge for RGGI compliance costs deemed recovered through base rates and a charge in connection with a proposed comprehensive settlement agreement for Virginia fuel expenses, partially offset by the absence of charges associated with the settlement of the South Carolina electric base rate case and increased unrealized gains on economic hedging activities.

Year-To-Date 2022 vs. 2021

Net income attributable to Dominion Energy decreased 80%, primarily due to a loss associated with the sale of Kewaunee, a decrease in net investment earnings on nuclear decommissioning trust funds, a charge for RGGI compliance costs deemed recovered through


                                       76

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

base rates, a charge in connection with a proposed comprehensive settlement agreement for Virginia fuel expenses and a charge to reflect the recognition of deferred taxes on the outside basis of Hope's stock upon meeting the classification as held for sale. These decreases were partially offset by the absence of charges associated with the settlement of the South Carolina electric base rate case and increased unrealized gains on economic hedging activities.
