Our Clean Energy Future

Our Clean Energy Future

The future of clean energy in America is being built 27 miles off the coast of Virginia Beach.

It’s called the Coastal Virginia Offshore Wind (CVOW) project and it is the largest project of its kind in the United States.

Once fully constructed in 2026, CVOW will generate enough clean, sustainable energy to power up to 660,000 homes. And by harnessing the power of the wind, CVOW will avoid or displace the carbon equivalent of removing 1 million non-electric cars from the road each year.

CVOW will also serve as a critical resource for meeting the clean energy goals of the Commonwealth of Virginia and addressing the growing threat of climate change across our most vulnerable communities.

CVOW is equally important for a diverse energy supply, which is essential for reliability, energy independence, and energy security while significantly reducing greenhouse gas emissions.

Anchored in Hampton Roads, CVOW is transforming the local economy by attracting economic development opportunities and creating hundreds of good-paying clean energy jobs, millions in tax revenues and hundreds of millions in economic benefits.

Our Commitment

CVOW is Possible Thanks to Critical Partnerships

Learn About Our Commitment

We are committed to delivering energy to our customers and community that is sustainable and reliable. That’s why we are building the largest offshore wind project in the United States.

CVOW has been a decade in the making and is well on its way to delivering the clean energy future we all want. Such an undertaking would not have been possible without important partnerships with environmental organizations, elected officials, governmental bodies, community leaders, community members and you.

You are crucial in shaping our clean energy future. Your feedback continues to be critical as we move from project planning through construction. Connect with us.

Together, we are building a sustainable energy future, with a plan to achieve net zero carbon dioxide and methane emissions across Dominion Energy's 13 states by 2050.

Clean and equitable energy solutions improve our environment and our communities. They are the path to a more resilient, reliable and healthier tomorrow.

CVOW will generate enough clean, sustainable energy to power up to 660,000 homes at peak and avoid as much as 5 million tons of carbon dioxide annually. That is the equivalent of planting more than 80 million trees or removing 1 million non-electric cars from the road annually!

A clean energy future needs clean energy jobs.

The Hampton Roads Alliance commissioned Virginia-based Mangum Economics to perform an offshore wind economic impact analysis. According to the study, construction of the CVOW project could create 900 direct and indirect Virginia jobs annually — 60% in the Hampton Roads region — and generate $57 million in pay and benefits, $143 million in economic benefits and approximately $5 million in local and state tax revenue.

When fully constructed in 2026, the analysis estimates CVOW could create about 1,100 direct and indirect jobs in the Hampton Roads region, and generate $82 million in pay and benefits, $210 million in economic benefits annually and approximately $11 million annually in local and state tax revenue.
