Arlington, VA – Consumer Energy Alliance (CEA) will host the “2013 Virginia Energy & Opportunity Forum: A Discussion with Virginia’s Gubernatorial Candidates” on August 29th where both Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli and Terry McAuliffe will engage with energy consumers and producers in a wide-ranging discussion about Virginia’s energy future.
The forum will provide both candidates an opportunity to outline their energy platforms and answer questions from energy consumers. In addition, two expert panels will explore how to ensure access to affordable, reliable electricity, and Virginia’s opportunities for offshore oil, natural gas and renewable energy development.
“Whether you’re a manufacturer in Virginia Beach or a stay-at-home mom in Charlottesville, the cost of energy has a huge impact on your everyday life,” said Adam Waldeck, Executive Director of CEA Southeast. “Ensuring access to affordable, reliable energy will be a major responsibility of Virginia’s next Governor, and we’re excited for voters that both candidates will take the time to discuss how they plan to do that.”
