Delivering Clean Energy
Millions of Americans depend on us every day for safe, affordable and reliable energy to heat and power their homes and businesses. They deserve a clean environment today and a healthy planet for future generations. We are delivering.
Our Net Zero Commitment
Expanding Solar Generation
At Dominion Energy, we’re all in solar. Our solar fleet – the 4th largest in the nation – powers 450,000 homes with zero-carbon electricity. And we’re just getting started. By 2022, we’re building enough new solar in Virginia to power an additional 750,000 homes.
With operations across Virginia and the Carolinas, no one is better positioned to lead the offshore wind revolution. That’s why we’re building the largest offshore wind project in the nation, which will produce enough zero-carbon electricity to power 650,000 homes by 2026.
Customers expect a clean environment and safe, reliable and affordable energy. We will continue to deliver on those expectations.
Zero Carbon Nuclear Energy
Nuclear power is the workhorse of our zero-carbon fleet, providing around-the-clock power to more than 1.5 million homes across Virginia, the Carolinas and New England. We’re extending the lifespan of our nuclear plants for 20 more years, so we can deliver zero-carbon power to our customers for years to come.
Low Carbon Natural Gas
Our natural gas infrastructure heats the homes of more than 3 million Americans and powers American manufacturing. And our natural gas electric fleet provides low-carbon energy to 2.8 million more. It’s an essential part of the net zero emissions future. Natural gas allows us to replace coal and cut carbon emissions in half. And it helps us bring more renewables on the grid by keeping the lights on and economy running when wind and solar are not producing power.
Investing in Renewable Natural Gas
We’re partnering with the nation’s largest hog and dairy producers to turn farm waste into clean energy for our customers. It’s called renewable natural gas, and by 2029 these projects will reduce emissions from our nation’s farms by the same amount as taking 600,000 cars off the road or planting 50 million new trees each year.
Reducing Methane Emissions
Our methane emissions reduction program is the most aggressive and sweeping in the nation. We’ve reduced emissions from our gas infrastructure by 25% since 2010, and we’re on track to achieve a 65% reduction by 2030 and 80% by 2040. And through our groundbreaking efforts to capture methane emissions from U.S. farms, our gas infrastructure business will be net zero by 2040.
Investing in Innovation
Achieving net zero emissions not only requires rapid expansion of today’s technology, but also long-term investments in the new and emerging technologies of tomorrow. We’re exploring carbon capture, battery storage, advanced nuclear and hydrogen to harness the power of innovation and accelerate future progress.
Achieving net zero by 2050 will require immediate action and investments in emerging technologies with long-term benefit.
Investing in battery storage technology to make renewables more reliable.
Developing advanced zero-carbon nuclear technology to power major cities.
Promoting public policies to support investment in new and emerging technologies.
