Dominion Virginia Power, our state’s largest utility and biggest corporate campaign donor, is putting its bottom line ahead of our right to clean water, a safe climate, and healthy communities.

Dominion spends big bucks to sponsor outdoor events like "Riverrock" because it wants Virginians to think the company cares about our environment. 

DOMINION'S ACTIONS TELL A DIFFERENT STORY:

Dirty Coal Ash:

  • Dominion is fighting for permits to keep polluting Virginia’s most beloved rivers -- like the James -- with toxic coal ash waste left behind from decades of burning dirty coal. And last spring, Dominion secretly dumped nearly 30 million gallons of untreated coal ash wastewater into Quantico Creek, a tributary of the Potomac River. 

Dirty Power:

  • Dominion is fighting to build one of the largest fracked-gas pipelines in the country -- the 600-mile Atlantic Coast Pipeline -- through Virginians’ property, farms and forests, trampling landowners’ rights and threatening to further wreck our climate. With rising seas already flooding Virginia’s coastal communities, we need clean energy like solar and wind, not a new dirty pipeline. 

Dirty Politics:

  • Dominion is pouring money into our political system, rigging it against the solutions we need. For example, Dominion paid to send our top regulator, Department of Environmental Quality Director Dave Paylor, to the Master’s Golf Tournament and picked up a $1,200 bar tab.
