Renewable Generation

Although traditional fuel sources such as coal, nuclear and oil are primarily responsible for generating electricity, we can’t make any more of them.  Some forms of renewable energy, such as biomass, grow as plants. Others, such as solar and wind power, are part of natural forces of the Earth. Dominion is increasingly using these basic forms of clean, renewable energy: wind, sun and water. We also use wood biomass as a sustainable fuel and are exploring new initiatives such as offshore wind.

Renewable generation is an important aspect of our generating portfolio to help meet the energy needs of the future.
