2018 VIRGINIA ENERGY PLAN

Work has begun on the Governor of Virginia’s 2018 update to the Virginia Energy Plan, with the beginning of a public comment period June 25 through August 24, 2018.  On Monday, June 25, the Office of the Secretary of Commerce and Trade and the Department of Mines, Minerals, and Energy hosted the Virginia Energy Plan Stakeholder Kickoff meeting at the Library of Virginia in Richmond.  At this meeting, Angela Navarro, Deputy Secretary of Commerce and Trade, provided an overview of the planned two-month stakeholder engagement process, which will include public meetings around the state and will solicit written comments online.  She encouraged those attending to comment on both the planned process and on the issues already identified as needing attention in the updated Virginia Energy Plan.

To learn more about the Virginia Energy Plan, the legislated requirements for its update during each governor’s term, and to see the slides presented by Deputy Secretary Navarro, please visit https://www.dmme.virginia.gov/de/virginiaenergyplan.shtml. Scheduled meetings will also be announced at this web site and there is a link to submit written comments via the Virginia Regulatory Town Hall web site here: http://townhall.virginia.gov/L/ViewNotice.cfm?gnid=856.
