The Virginia Department of Energy administers the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law Funding. The agency will receive $22.7 million for the next 15 years. This increase in funding requires early planning for projects and opportunity for public comment. Some proposed opportunities for projects are identified in Problem areas. Virginia Energy will be taking public comment on these proposed problem areas in person and via email at BILComments@energy.virginia.gov through October 1, 2023.
