Sustainable Future, Cleaner Environment
Lower Carbon Footprint
This summer, we announced that the carbon footprint for a typical Dominion Energy customer in Virginia would shrink by as much as 25% over the next 8 years under our long-range planning.
We are dedicated to protecting the environment, and work daily to minimize our environmental footprint, protect natural resources and improve the communities we share. View our Environmental Policy Statement for detailed information.
Cleaner air, cleaner water
Power stations fueled by clean, natural gas now generate more than 40 percent of the energy for our customers. Maintaining water quality is also important to our environmental stewardship efforts. We are leading the way on coal ash pond closures, safely treating and discharging water to meet all quality standards.
Protecting wildlife and habitats
Protecting the ecosystem around our facilities is an integral part of our commitment to the environment. Avian protection areas help protect native birds such as bald eagles and peregrine falcons. The Wings at Work program helps to foster a suitable habitat for butterflies, bees and birds.
When not in use, unplug appliances and you could save an average of $100 dollars per year on your energy bill.
Close Your Blinds
During summer months close your blinds to save money and reduce CO2 emissions.
Install Energy Saving Light Bulbs
Use energy saving light bulbs in your home to reduce CO2 emissions by 400 Kg over the lifetime of each bulb.
