Work It, SOVA (May 30, 2017), reports that in an energy roundtable discussion in Danville on May 29, 2017, Governor McAuliffe applauded a Dan River Region solar energy project and said Virginia needs to get serious about alternative energy if it wants to attract large tech companies and other employers. “McAuliffe urged the state to jump on clean energy projects for several reasons. He noted that climate change could have a dramatic impact on the state, with rising sea levels threatening the Norfolk Naval Shipyard with flooding. Additionally, he said many tech companies like Google and Microsoft wanted to see investment in renewable energy before they would move to the area.”
If McAuliffe really wants Virginia to be a leader in clean energy, why in the world is he still supporting the ACP and MVP?!
