About Coastal Virginia Offshore Wind

About Coastal
Virginia Offshore Wind

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’s positioning Hampton Roads and Virginia as leaders in science, technology and innovation.

Once fully constructed in 2026, 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!

By delivering wind power, CVOW provides what our customers want and the planet needs: energy with zero emissions and fuel costs — a critical resource for a carbon-free energy future.

Anchored in Hampton Roads, the CVOW project will serve as a catalyst for a new domestic supply chain hub that will serve the U.S. East Coast wind industry, creating hundreds of good-paying clean energy jobs, millions in tax revenues and hundreds of millions in economic benefits.

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.

The CVOW project 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.

And while we have our eyes on what's next, we understand the challenges of the present. We’ll need your help as we consider all potential benefits and impacts of the CVOW project — from the offshore wind turbines to the electric transmission lines that will deliver the clean energy onshore to our communities. Your feedback is critical for identifying the best possible routing options for the electric transmission lines. Connect with us here.

Together, we are building a sustainable energy future, with a plan to achieve net zero carbon dioxide and methane emissions across our 16 states by 2050.

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

Investing in clean, sustainable energy means creating new avenues for good-paying 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.
