ICYMI: New Dominion Energy Acquisition Set To Expand Offshore Wind Industry In The Commonwealth

In case you missed it, Dominion Energy announced a new agreement to acquire the Kitty Hawk North Wind lease to develop the Coastal Virginia Offshore Wind (CVOW)-South. This will be an expansion of the existing CVOW project that could support an additional 800 MW of offshore wind generation capacity once it is complete, while also supporting additional Virginia jobs and benefitting our economy.

Virginians for Offshore Wind applauded this effort in an official statement following the announcement, saying: “Building on the success of the original CVOW project, today’s news demonstrates continued momentum behind job-creating offshore wind.”

Several prominent Virginia news outlets have covered this pivotal announcement and highlighted the many exciting details of the CVOW-South project. See some highlights below:

As Virginia continues to expand its offshore wind energy capacity, we look forward to seeing the success of this energy source for our homes and businesses, as well as the prosperity that the offshore wind industry will bring to the Commonwealth. The future of clean energy lies in offshore wind, and Virginia plans to remain in the driver’s seat.
