Reporting on Stakeholder Perspectives on Renewable Energy Priorities Articulated in SB 966

Dominion Energy contracted with Meridian Institute in June 2018 to design and facilitate a stakeholder engagement process that will focus on issues set forth in the recently enacted SB 966 Electric Utility Regulation, Grid Modernization, and Energy Efficiency Act. This included gathering perspectives on potential improvements to: a) existing solar energy net metering programs; b) the pilot programs for community solar development; c) expanding options for customers with corporate clean energy procurement targets; and d) overcoming impediments to the siting of new renewable energy projects. This process was executed in collaboration with the Governor’s Office, and the findings served as input into development of the Virginia Energy Plan. Below please find links to a high level summary of the input gathered through this process along with an addendum to the summaries of the 13 separate stakeholder group meetings that were conducted.
