Senate Bill 779 and Virginia’s Renewable Energy Mix
We recently sat down with Senator Frank Wagner in his office at the Virginia General Assembly to find out more about why Senate Bill 779 was pushed to 2017. Wagner explained that SB 779 will now go to a study group that will include all of the stakeholders involved – renewable energy companies, electric utilities, etc. – to create a bill that is acceptable to everyone before it is re-introduced next year.
Wagner also shared that Virginia imports more energy than any state other than California and calls the amount of energy the Commonwealth imports “untenable.” We greatly appreciate Senator Wagner’s time and commitment to renewable energy in the Commonwealth. Thank him for being an advocate for Virginia ratepayers. Call him at (804) 698-7507, or email him at firstname.lastname@example.org.
