Statement on Department of Energy's Va. Grant to Develop Offshore Wind Energy


Location: Washington, DC

U.S. Sen. Mark R. Warner (D-VA) issued the following statement on the U.S. Department of Energy's announcement today of an award to Dominion Virginia Power to further develop offshore wind technology. The Energy Department will award Dominion up to $4 million to complete engineering, design, and permitting for an innovative offshore wind project off the coast of Virginia Beach:

"This is a positive step forward for the Commonwealth," Sen. Warner said. "Developing our offshore energy resources will help create domestic manufacturing jobs and strengthen Virginia's economy. It also advances efforts to better harness renewable energy sources while reducing U.S. reliance on imported oil. I have been an advocate for an "all-of-the-above' approach for some time now, and I think there's a lot of potential in developing our offshore energy opportunities off the Virginia coast."
