Help us build your clean energy future. Dominion Energy is committed to delivering what our customers want — energy that is safe, reliable and sustainable. We want you involved in making offshore wind in Virginia a reality.
At Dominion Energy, we are committed to engaging with our communities and being a good neighbor.
The Coastal Virginia Offshore Wind (CVOW) project is positioning both Hampton Roads and Virginia as leaders in science, technology and innovation. Such an undertaking would not have been possible without important partnerships with environmental organizations, elected officials, governmental bodies, community leaders, community members and you.
We are supporting future generations through our education partnerships. The Dominion Energy Charitable Foundation, Dominion Energy’s philanthropic organization, has also provided grant funding to the National Energy Education Development (NEED) Project to train the next generation of clean energy employees through an Offshore Wind for Students initiative. Find out more about our work with NEED and others on our Educators page.
Dominion Energy is also working with the Hampton Roads Workforce Council, K-12 educators, community colleges, colleges and universities, North American Building Trades Union and their state affiliate, Virginia Building Trades and other partners throughout the region to help train today’s workforce and the next generation of clean energy employees. Through collaboration and partnerships with Virginia’s educational institutions and unions, we're helping build a pipeline of talent in skilled trades, engineering, supply chain management and ship building and repair.
It will ultimately lower the cost of offshore wind development and create good-paying clean energy jobs, long-lasting economic benefits and pave the way for an equitable clean energy future for us all. Investing in sustainable energy means Dominion Energy is creating new avenues for good-paying jobs. Visit our Suppliers page or our Workforce page to learn more.
