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.
Solar photovoltaic technology is a rapidly growing renewable energy sector.
Generating power with moving water is efficient and friendly to the environment.
Wind power holds significant promise for our energy future.
Among our initiatives are biomass conversions, solar programs and offshore wind.
Wood waste fuels several power stations, and three more are being converted.
Renewable energy is an increasingly important aspect of our generating portfolio.
The 2013 Annual Report on Renewable Energy describes Dominion's efforts to meet renewable portfolio standard goals, its generation of renewable energy, and advances in renewable generation technology that affect the company's activities.
