We need to build solar in Virginia!

We can’t reach our clean energy goals unless we are able to build solar projects

  • Why It Matters

    When the state legislature passed a bill aiming to get Virginia to 100% clean energy by 2050, it specified that the Commonwealth would need to build large-scale solar projects to get there. However, 14% of Virginia counties have already put forth bills to ban these projects! We can’t meet our clean energy goals without these projects.

  • What’s the Solution?

    While local input is important, a complete ban on these projects prevents us from getting to our clean energy goals. A bill in the state legislature (SB697) does a good job of balancing local control while ensuring we can meet our clean energy goals and combat climate change.

  • What Can I Do?

    This bill has passed the state Senate but faces hurdles in the state House. Send a letter to your state representative today and ask them to vote for this bill.
