Dominion passes off to each of us its ratepayers those costs involved with satisfying Virginia’s renewable energy law. And what kind of renewable energy are we paying for? Dams, trash and wood. No wind and no solar.
Worse still, the energy from dams, trash and wood is mostly generated out-of-state and from old facilities built prior to World War II. Zero, zilch, nada from wind and solar that in other states across the U.S. is creating thousands of jobs and launching clean energy industries.
Nonetheless, Dominion’s advertising promotes wind and solar power as its source of renewable energy. Why not? Virginia’s renewable energy law rewards them financially as if they did – to the tune of $76 million!
Pretty sweet for Dominion- a major rip off for us its ratepayers.
