By the year 2045, a state law known as the Virginia Clean Economy Act (VCEA) mandates that all electricity consumed in Northern Virginia must be produced from 100% carbon free, renewable energy sources.
VCEA advocates say this goal is essential to address the perils of climate change, and that the law will produce new jobs and economic opportunities in the Green Economy. Detractors, though, express concerns about the burdens this will place on the cost of doing business in Virginia.
The Loudoun Chamber will host a conversation with the co-author of the VCEA, representatives from utility and industry experts, to discuss how business is adapting to legislative mandates and consumer demands, while ensuring every consumer has access to reliable, affordable energy.
- Keynote speaker, Delegate Richard “Rip” Sullivan (D-Arlington), Chief House Patron of the Virginia Clean Economy Act
- Tom McDuffie, President of Inova Realty
- Richard Golinowski, Airport Manager, Washington Dulles International Airport
Join us at this next edition in the 2022 PolicyMaker Series, to learn more about how the Virginia’s ambitious goals to reach “net zero” carbon emissions will impact the availability and cost of electricity, address climate change and produce jobs and opportunities as part of the Green Economy.
