Coastal Virginia Offshore Wind

Virginia Offshore Wind

Dominion Energy's Coastal Virginia Offshore Wind project is the first offshore wind initiative in the mid-Atlantic.

We have contracted with a global wind leader - Ørsted Energy of Denmark -- to build the two 6-megawatt turbines 27 miles off the coast of Virginia Beach.

This initiative continues our commitment to 3,000 megawatts of solar and wind energy under development or in operation by the beginning of 2022. 

Dominion Energy has also selected LE Meyers to perform onshore electrical design and construction. Beginning August 2018, offshore survey vessels began to clear the cable route by investigation for any unexploded ordnance or other debris. On August 3, 2018 , Dominion filed a request with the Virginia State Corporation Commission for project approval.
