Please ask your delegate to support HB 167. The bill would require electric utilities who want to expand their capacity to deliver fuel and then recover the costs from their customers to prove that: 1) additional capacity is needed, 2) both the amount of additional supply and its delivery date are clearly identified, 3) alternatives have been objectively studied, and 4) the new source is the least expensive option. If HB 167 were to become law, it would cut down on the number of costly, dangerous and unnecessary pipeline projects like the Atlantic Coast and Mountain Valley pipelines.
