Thank You DomVAPower (NOT!!!); New Scorecard Shows Solar Power #FAIL in Virginia as State Drops 3 Slots


Yep, thanks to Dominion Power and its bought-and-paid for legislature, regulatory agencies, etc., Virginia not only continues to lag wayyyyy behind other states in terms of solar power development (we got a “D” grade and fell three slots in the rankings from last year, according to this new report card by SolarPowerRocks.com). Check out the debacle that Dominion et al have caused her in Virginia, which despite more-than-ample sunshine, lags behind 37 other states, including states far to our north (e.g., my home state of Connecticut) and also neighbors MD, DC and NC. Great job General Assembly, Dominion, etc, etc. – NOT!

P.S. So much for Terry McAuliffe’s vow to make Virginia the “energy capital of the East Coast.” Heck, we’re not even the energy capital of the mid-Atlantic…or anywhere else. Massive #FAIL by all involved in making Virginia energy policy.

There's no paywall on Blue Virginia, and we definitely want to keep it that way! If you want to help support our work, you can donate here - thanks! Also, you can sign up for our weekly email list here.
