Lobbying and Political Contributions Policy

As a company whose operations are subject to extensive regulation throughout its multi-state service territory, Dominion Energy actively participates in political processes at local, state and national levels. Our goal is to contribute to legislative and rule-making activities affecting our business consistent with our corporate values and strategies, and to educate and inform public officials of the practical effects of public policy decisions and objectives they consider. Always, our efforts carefully balance several primary, related goals: to create and preserve long-term shareholder value; to ensure safe, dependable, reliable and affordable energy supplies for our customers; and our corporate commitment to preserve and improve the natural environment.

Corporate Political Contributions

To promote transparency of our political activity, we are pleased to provide a voluntary report of corporate contributions to 527 tax-exempt political organizations, contributions to 501(c)(4) tax-exempt organizations, for trade associations and other tax-exempt organizations to which we contribute $50,000 or more, the portions of our payments attributable to lobbying and payments greater than $50,000 in the aggregate to national 501(c)(3) tax-exempt organizations whose predominate purpose is to provide venues for the exchange of ideas on matters of public policy. Dominion Energy's policies ensure that all corporate political donations made by the company are in full compliance with all applicable federal and state election laws, rules and regulations.
