Coastal Virginia Offshore Wind

Virginia Offshore Wind

The winds of the Mid-Atlantic are blowing clean energy to Virginia. Twenty-seven miles off the coast of Virginia Beach, Dominion Energy is building the first wind turbines to directly serve its customers.

As part of our ongoing commitment to bring cleaner energy to customers, Dominion Energy Virginia is moving forward on the mid-Atlantic’s first offshore wind project in a federal lease area. We have signed an agreement and strategic partnership with Ørsted Energy of Denmark, a global leader in offshore wind development, to build two 6-megawatt turbines off the coast of Virginia Beach.

Dominion Energy’s Coastal Virginia Offshore Wind initiative is the first phase of a plan that could bring more than 2,000 megawatts of wind generated electricity to its Virginia and North Carolina customers.
