Report: Internet Giants Reject Dominion’s Plan for More Fossil Fuels in Virginia

This Greenpeace article discusses how Internet giants like Microsoft, Amazon, and Apple issued a letter rejecting Dominion’s plan for more fossil fuels in Virginia. At Dominion Energy’s integrated resource plan hearings in Virginia today, cloud computing and internet giants delivered a letter demanding the company shift away from planned investment in natural gas infrastructure and instead invest in renewable energy and energy storage capacity to meet growing data center energy demand in the state.

As Greenpeace documented in Clicking Clean Virginia report in February, Dominion Energy has relied heavily on growing electricity demand from Virginia’s “Data Center Alley” to justify further fossil fuel investments, including the construction of the $7B Atlantic Coast Pipeline.
