Electrify! Virginia Online Conference

October 15, 2020

Dear Virginia Electrification Stakeholders:

Virginia’s Electric Cooperatives invite you to participate in a virtual collaboration to discuss opportunities to electrify additional segments of the Commonwealth’s economy that can provide benefits to consumers and the environment.

As the electric sector’s emissions of carbon dioxide, nitrogen oxides, and particulates continue to decline, we have an opportunity to build on those environmental improvements and convey them to other sectors of the economy. Virginia’s Electric Cooperatives want to work with a wide array of stakeholders to accomplish that goal.

Beneficial Electrification includes the application of electricity to end-uses where doing so satisfies at least one of the following conditions, without adversely affecting the others:

  • Saves consumers money over time;
  • Benefits the environment and reduces greenhouse gas emissions;
  • Improves product quality or consumer quality of life;
  • Fosters a more robust and resilient grid.

The free collaborative conversation will take place on
Thursday, October 15 from 10:00 am – Noon EDT through a Zoom webinar.

This virtual collaboration will investigate potential efforts to further electrify the Commonwealth, as well as discuss opportunities for a diverse set of stakeholders to work together to accomplish that goal. It will include dynamic and informative perspectives on alternative transportation, consumer engagement, policy considerations, and the role of utilities.

NOTE: After your registration is approved, you will receive an email with a link to the Zoom webinar.
