Powering Southwest Virginia Coalition

Development of a pumped hydroelectric storage facility in Southwest Virginia would produce new jobs and investment, bringing significant economic opportunity to the region. This infrastructure would also be a long-term investment in strengthening the reliability of Virginia’s electric grid. To show my strong support for constructing a pumped hydroelectric storage facility in Virginia’s Coalfield Region, I would like to join the Powering Southwest Virginia Coalition.

After joining the Coalition, we will share the latest project updates and keep you informed about its progress.



Recent Projects in the Region
