Virginia Clean Economy Act
Our Inaugural Summit featured a Keynote Address by the Honorable Ralph S. Northam, 73rd Governor of the Commonwealth of Virginia, where he signed the Virginia Clean Economy Act (VCEA).
At the 2019, 2020, and 2021 Summit, we had the honor and privilege of hosting the Honorable Ralph S. Northam, who delivered a keynote address. At the 2019 Summit, Governor Northam announced Executive Order 43, which tasked the commonwealth's electric systems with producing 30% of electricity from renewable energy sources by 2030 and achieving 100% carbon-free electricity by 2050.
Since the announcement of Executive Order 43, Governor Northam signed the Virginia Clean Economy Act into law. This landmark legislation established additional goals and mechanisms needed to secure the future of renewable energy across the Commonwealth of Virginia.
