Senator Herring believes that Virginia should be a national leader in the production and use of renewable energy. In 2009, he introduced and passed Energy legislation to increase the Commonwealth's renewable portfolio standard goal from 12 to 15 percent by 2025. Additionally, the law requires electric utilities to offer real-time variable rates to customers, allowing consumers to conserve energy and save money. The law also increases payments to customers who generate their own electricity from renewable sources and can now sell their surplus energy back to the electric grid.
