Energizing Our Communities

Dominion Energy volunteer working in garden

Companywide Projects

A series of focused volunteer projects takes place each year. Employees have rolled up their sleeves to weatherize homes, build nature trails in parks, clean up waterways, construct access ramps for the handicapped and paint and repair school facilities.

Employees coordinate with community partners to organize the work, and the Dominion Energy Charitable Foundation pays for supplies and materials. Local employee volunteer councils work with parks, zoos, schools, shelters and other environmental, educational and housing organizations to choose the projects each year.

Annual Volunteer Efforts

Since the fall of 2000, Dominion Energy employees have participated in over 200 projects nominated and led by employees in support of environmental efforts throughout communities served by Dominion Energy companies.

The Energizing Our Communities initiative started as a one-day event in October 2000 to help engage Dominion volunteers in environmental projects in their communities. Our volunteers have helped beautify parks, assisted with erosion control projects, removed invasive species, cleaned rivers, replaced osprey nesting platforms, restored greenhouses, built urban gardens and much more.

Local Projects

Our volunteers work in teams to support their hometowns in countless ways: installing insulation in drafty homes and making repairs for the elderly, stocking the shelves of food banks, helping schools by completing maintenance projects and more. Our volunteer program is grassroots-based, and employee teams at virtually every company location evaluate requests from community organizations and determine which projects to support.

Our employees are also active volunteers outside of work, where they serve as leaders in their communities, on boards of non-profit organizations, mentoring young people, and leading community civic activities. We support our employees through both leave time and matching funds.

Volunteer Recognition

Each year, Dominion Energy honors outstanding employee and retiree volunteers as Volunteers of the Year. Each honoree receives a trophy and a $5,000 contribution to a non-profit of their choice. The 2019 celebration marked the 35th anniversary of our corporate volunteer program.

Over the span of the past three decades, our volunteers have established an extraordinary legacy of helping those in need, working one-on-one or in teams to enhance educational outcomes, support veterans in need and improve our environment. In some cases, projects that were intended to last one day have endured for well over a decade and are still going strong. In other words, our volunteer program has been built to last.
