Virginia currently has among the weakest utility disconnection protections for customers of any state in the southeast. This includes households containing the very young, seniors, or people with disabilities or medical conditions, even during extreme weather events or states of emergency.
We need to expand protections for access to essential utility services – water and power – for socially and medically vulnerable people by limiting disconnections and ensuring access for the most vulnerable.
Join us to hear from legislative champions who will lead the charge during the 2023 General Assembly session! This event is hosted by Appalachian Voices, Clean Virginia, Virginia Interfaith Power & Light and Virginia Organizing.
