Energy News Network: In early October, Gov. Ralph Northam released the 2018 Virginia Energy Plan, which lays out a strategic vision for Virginia’s energy policy over the next 10 years. The administration’s plan underscores what major energy users across the Commonwealth have already recognized: that Virginia can seize an energy future that is efficient and clean, while growing the local economy.
In developing the 2018 Virginia Energy Plan, the Northam Administration welcomed comments from Virginia businesses and residents. In response, major companies, universities, business associations and healthcare institutions—representing some of the Commonwealth’s largest energy users—submitted comments with recommendations for Virginia’s energy future.
