Coastal Virginia Offshore Wind Electric Transmission

Help us build your clean energy future.

Dominion Energy is committed to delivering what our customers want — energy that is safe, reliable and sustainable. And we want you involved in making offshore wind in Virginia a reality. The Coastal Virginia Offshore Wind (CVOW) project fulfills that need and it’s 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.

Public engagement is an integral part of project planning. This effort begins with listening and learning from the community and others and factoring in this input as much as possible. Do you live in the Hampton Roads area? Do you want to have input on how wind energy is delivered onshore? We want to hear from you. We need your feedback to help us deliver the best possible project and transmission routing options for Virginians.

Communication with you is key to the success of our clean energy future. We’re here to listen, learn and receive your input. We are seeking your feedback to help develop the best possible route for transmission lines to bring wind-powered energy onshore.

Project Goals

Throughout the planning process, we will be hosting virtual public meetings, workshops, roundtables and more that will seek your input on:

  • Maximizing the use of existing rights-of-way
  • Minimizing the impacts to landowners, environmental justice communities, cultural and historic resources and sensitive species
  • Opportunities for businesses and local hiring
  • Partnerships on other opportunities created by the CVOW project like career and workforce development and scientific research

With your help, we will enable clean, sustainable wind energy to power up to 660,000 homes across Virginia, while creating a boost to the Commonwealth's emerging green economy by creating hundreds of jobs, millions of dollars in tax revenue for the state and localities and hundreds of millions of dollars of economic benefits. And it can be anchored right here in the Hampton Roads region.
