Dominion Energy can easily shoulder the cost of unpaid utility bill debt during the COVID-19 crisis using the $502.7 million it has already overcharged Virginia families and small businesses since 2017.
After years of activist opposition, legal setbacks, and a ballooning $8 billion price tag, Dominion Energy finally canceled the Atlantic Coast Pipeline, a project that would have polluted communities, worsened the climate crisis, and ripped off ratepayers.
At Clean Virginia, we believe our Commonwealth should be leading the transition to a clean energy future. Unfortunately, legalized corruption is holding us back. For too long, energy monopolies have written their own rules in Richmond, rigging the system against Virginian consumers, small businesses, and communities. Weak campaign finance laws allow our politicians to accept unlimited campaign contributions from the very utilities they have a duty to regulate. This corruption stifles job growth and innovation, leads to high energy bills, and hurts our environment.
But with your help, we are determined to fix this broken system so it works for all Virginians.
