Dominion Energy is committed to its role as a significant player in local, regional and state economic development across the 13 states where the company operates. Dominion Energy’s economic development team is developing an even more comprehensive and proactive strategy that will benefit the company’s more than seven million electric and natural gas customers.
“Despite the challenges the pandemic presented over the past year, Dominion Energy remained fully devoted to economic development across the company’s footprint,” said Felicia Howard, vice president of Economic Development Strategy. “We continued the important work of not only being a utility provider, but also a partner in the communities we serve.”
Last year, the utility’s strong focus on economic development helped secure wins in data center, advanced manufacturing, food and beverage, service and indoor agriculture projects. These ventures will support over 17,000 new jobs and $9 billion in private-sector investment across the company’s footprint. The Siemens Gamesa’s facility in Virginia, home of Dominion Energy’s headquarters, will be the first U.S. offshore wind turbine blade facility, propelling the largest new renewable energy project in the U.S.
Dominion Energy is committed to providing safe, reliable, affordable and increasingly clean energy to its customers and achieving zero carbon dioxide and methane emissions from its power generation and gas infrastructure operations nationwide by 2050. In addition, its commitment to clean energy will continue to foster sustainable economic development across the communities it serves.
