Comprehensive plan for energy

Hello all,

I would like to see more affordable energy options available for Virginians. We pay some of the highest bills in the nation and it increases stress on our communities and makes it even more difficult for folks for whom energy use is a large financial burden to get out of poverty. I hope whatever solutions we move forward with, we're thinking about folks who are paying a huge percentage of their income just to keep the lights on/their homes heated and cooled. In a similar vein, I hope we implement consumer protection with whatever energy solutions we come up with so ordinary Virginians aren't the ones who are having to pay extra for new/better forms of energy.

Lastly, I'm hoping we pursue renewable, clean energy solutions. Energy efficiency helps everyone and helps us meet our climate goals.
