Va. has the tech to reach 80% renewables by 2028, lawmaker says
Virginia state Delegates Sam Rasoul and Delores McQuinn are sponsoring a bill that, if approved, would require the state's utilities to source 80% of their total electricity needs from renewables by 2028. The technology exists to reach such a goal, but doing so also depends on Dominion Energy's plans, says Rasoul.
