Clean governance. Clean energy. Clean competition.

Our Mission

Advance clean governance, clean energy, and clean competition by fighting monopoly utility corruption in Virginia politics.


Campaign Finance: Through our affiliated Political Action Committee, we support legislators and candidates for Virginia’s General Assembly who have a public commitment to refuse donations from publicly regulated electric monopolies.

Public Information: Through civic education and organizing, we inform Virginia voters about the costs to Virginia jobs, electricity rates, and security from monopoly utility influence in Richmond. 

Policy and Research: We produce original research and develop smart policy ideas to promote clean energy and clean competition.

We believe that all Virginians, including low-income communities and communities of color, should have a voice in our energy decisions.

“The Virginia Way is pay-to-play: people elect politicians, and politicians work for donors.”
— Jeff Thomas, Virginia Politics and Government in a New Century
