About Coastal Virginia Offshore Wind
Coastal Virginia Offshore Wind (CVOW) consists of a pilot and a commercial-scale project. The pilot, which became operational in October 2020, consists of two offshore wind energy turbines generating 6-megawatts each — enough to power up to 3,000 homes — 27 miles off the coast of Virginia Beach. The pilot represents a series of firsts for Dominion Energy and the United States. It is the first offshore wind farm installed in federal waters and the first offshore wind project developed and owned by an electric utility company. The commercial-scale project builds on the success of the pilot and will consist of 176 offshore wind energy turbines generating a total of 2.6-gigawatts — enough clean, sustainable energy to power up to 660,000 homes. CVOW has immense potential as a renewable energy source that can reduce greenhouse gas emissions, diversify energy supply, generate affordable electricity for homes and businesses and help revitalize key economic sectors. It will also serve as a critical resource for meeting the clean energy goals of the Commonwealth of Virginia and for achieving the company’s commitment to Net Zero carbon dioxide and methane emissions across its 15 states by 2050.
