Virginia Energy Plan: Make Your Comments Now

Every four years, coinciding with the new Administration of each Governor, the Commonwealth develops a new Virginia Energy Plan — a longterm strategy document that details the future of energy in the state.  The next iteration is currently under development, and the new McAuliffe Administration is seeking input.  As the vast potential for energy efficiency is becoming increasingly evident, this is a critical time to emphasize it as one the most sensible and cost-effective methods of meeting the Commonwealth’s energy needs.

A series of six Public Listening Sessions is being held across the state, and the VAEEC is honored to have been tapped by the Administration to make an official presentation at each meeting.  Our Executive Director Ken Rosenfeld presented at the first two sessions held in Fredericksburg and Annandale, and you’ll see either him or one of our Board members at the remaining four meetings, coming up soon and listed below.

If the tour is coming to your part of the state, please join us and share your perspective on energy efficiency during the public comment portion of the meeting.  If you can’t attend in person, you have the option of submitting comments online.  The new plan must be finalized by October 1, so the sooner you can submit your input, the better.

As always, our message is effective because of the wide breadth of our members and supporters.  Please make your voice heard as we work to raise the profile of energy efficiency in the next Virginia Energy Plan.  And thank you for all of the work that you do.
