RICHMOND, Va. (AP) - Dominion Resources shareholders are gathering in suburban Richmond for their annual meeting.

Shareholders will meet Wednesday, days after the energy company reported a first-quarter profit of $536 million. The results topped Wall Street expectations.

The meeting is also expected to attract protesters of what activists call Dominion’s “dirty energy projects.” A key target is the Atlantic Coast Pipeline, which would ship natural gas from several states including West Virginia to the southeast.

Organizers such as the Sierra Club and Chesapeake Climate Action Network say the protest will include residents affected by Dominion energy projects. The proposed pipeline would total more than 500 miles.

Dominion is partnering with other energy companies on the pipeline. It says it will create jobs and bring cheaper, cleaner energy to the region.
