As directed by the Virginia General Assembly, every four years Virginia Energy develops a comprehensive Virginia Energy Plan. Governor Glenn Youngkin’s vision for the 2022 Plan is to develop a data-driven roadmap that considers all energy sources and is transparent with Virginians about the opportunities and costs each energy source presents while recognizing new information and learnings will continue to guide the process and decision making over time. The 2022 Energy Plan will provide energy policy recommendations that aim to balance the current and future needs of all Virginians, environmental goals, economic competitiveness, consumer choice and technology innovation.
The plan will be built on a 4-R foundation of competitive rates to all energy consumers, reliable and responsible delivery of energy and rural economic development.
Virginia Energy develops the Virginia Energy Plan in consultation with many stakeholders, including the State Corporation Commission, the Department of Environmental Quality, the Clean Energy Advisory Board, representatives from the solar, wind, energy efficiency, and transportation electrification sectors, natural gas and electric utilities, consumer, environmental, manufacturing, forestry, and agricultural organizations and the general public of the Commonwealth.
This forum serves as one of the ways interested individuals and organizations can provide comments on the 2022 Virginia Energy Plan.
Virginia Energy is especially interested in comments from all of Virginia’s demographics, geographic regions and businesses, to ensure that those different perspectives are reflected in the Plan. Virginia Energy also welcomes comments related to how Virginia energy policy can better support the small business community.
The affiliations of stakeholders who submit comments on the Plan will be listed in an acknowledgement in the Plan. Stakeholders should be aware that all comments submitted to Virginia Energy are subject to the Freedom of Information Act.
