About Coastal Virginia Offshore Wind
The Coastal Virginia Offshore Wind (CVOW) project consists of two portions: a pilot and a commercial-scale project. Located 27 miles off the coast of Virginia Beach, the CVOW pilot project, which became operational in October 2020, consists of two wind turbines generating 6-megawatts each. 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 only project developed and owned by an electric utility company. The commercial-scale project will build on the success of the pilot and will consist of 176 wind turbines generating a total of 2.6-gigawatts — which is enough clean, sustainable energy to power up to 660,000 homes. CVOW has immense potential as a renewable energy source that can decrease 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 net zero carbon dioxide and methane emissions across its 13 states by 2050.
