Virginia

“Today’s hyper-partisan political climate is preventing Virginia’s small businesses and families from reaping the benefits of advancements in energy production and delivery. We must commit to energy diversification and invest in infrastructure to ensure access to affordable energy for all Virginians, regardless of their economic status. CEA’s Campaign for America’s Energy will prompt elected officials and ordinary citizens to seize the opportunities presented by Virginia’s energy resources and to understand how we can satisfy the state’s energy needs while also protecting our environment.”

– Brett Vassey, President of the Virginia Manufacturers Association

Virginians spend nearly $3,290 annually on energy. For a low-income Virginian living at the poverty line, that translates to over 27 percent of their individual income.
