Clean Virginia: About

Our Mission

Advance clean government and clean energy by fighting utility monopoly corruption in Virginia politics.

Our Path

Clean Virginia is an independent advocacy organization with an associated Political Action Committee, Clean Virginia Fund. Clean Virginia works to fight corruption in Virginia politics to promote clean energy and community control over our energy policy. We are motivated by the core belief that our democracy should serve everyday Virginians over special interests. Clean Virginia is working toward these goals in three ways:

Public Information

Virginians have been kept in the dark about how Richmond operates and how Dominion and Appalachian Power dictate our energy policy. We engage the public through media, civic organizing, and original research to shine a light on the cost of this corruption in jobs, dollars, and the environment.

Legislative Resources

We provide fair and accurate legislative analysis on energy policy to our lawmakers to counterbalance the misleading and self-interested information provided by monopoly utility lobbyists.

Campaign Finance

We are dedicated to strengthening Virginia’s weak campaign finance laws. Additionally, through our associated Political Action Committee, Clean Virginia Fund, we provide no-strings-attached contributions to legislators and candidates who have demonstrated a public commitment to affordable clean energy and to not accepting money from the utilities they have a duty to regulate.

Clean Virginia’s funding is provided by our Board Chair, Michael Bills. For details on Clean Virginia’s financial reports and political giving, please visit our listing at Virginia’s Public Access Project.
