About Coastal Virginia Offshore Wind

About Coastal
Virginia Offshore Wind

27 miles off the coast of Virginia, we’re leading the clean energy sector in offshore wind.

When fully constructed in 2026, the Coastal Virginia Offshore Wind project anchored in the Hampton Roads region will deliver up to 8.8 million megawatt hours per year of clean, renewable energy to the grid — powering up to 660,000 Virginia homes — and will avoid as much as 5 million tons of carbon dioxide emissions annually — the equivalent of planting more than 80 million trees or removing 1 million non-electric cars from the road for a year.

With the two wind turbines currently in operation, the first installed in U.S. federal waters, we are avoiding up to 25,000 tons of carbon dioxide emissions annually. CVOW will deliver what our customers want and what the planet needs: energy that is affordable, reliable and sustainable.

Dominion Energy is committed to delivering what our customers want and what the planet needs — energy that is affordable, reliable and sustainable. Projects like CVOW enable us to deliver on that vision, allowing us to protect the environment while continuing to take care of our customers.

And while we have our eyes on the future, we understand the challenges of the present. We remain committed to our fundamental mission of providing reliable and affordable energy.

Dominion Energy is committed to building a sustainable energy future, with a plan to achieve net-zero carbon dioxide and methane emissions across our 16 states by 2050. When fully constructed in 2026, the Coastal Virginia Offshore Wind project will deliver up to 8.8 million megawatts per year of clean, renewable energy to the grid — powering up to 660,000 Virginia homes — and will avoid as much as 5 million tons of carbon dioxide emissions annually — the equivalent of planting more than 80 million trees.

Investing in sustainable energy means Dominion Energy is creating new avenues for good-paying jobs.

The Hampton Roads Alliance commissioned an offshore wind economic impact analysis, which was performed by Virginia-based Mangum Economics. During the second phase of the project, the analysis projects about $143 million in economic impact will be generated annually and 900 jobs could be created during the construction period. Nearly $5 million in local and state tax revenue will be created.

Once Phase II is complete, the analysis estimates CVOW will create about 1,100 jobs from operations and generate $11 million annually in local and state tax revenue and almost $210 million annually in economic impacts. That means thousands of good-paying, clean energy jobs in the Commonwealth that will help transform the economy in Hampton Roads and beyond.
