Report, campaign challenge Dominion power priorities
Dominion power should be investing more in wind and solar power, rather than building new fossil fuel plants, the Wise Energy for Virginia coalition says in a report released today, in conjunction with the launch of a statewide “New Power for the Old Dominion” campaign. The coalition of environmental groups put out the report in advance of Dominion power’s annual integrated resource plan, due out within a week. That plan looks at matching generation, transmission and demand-side management with expected demand over 15 years. Read Dominion’s 2012 IRP.
