Virginia’s Electric Cooperatives invite you to participate in a virtual collaboration to discuss opportunities to electrify additional segments of the Commonwealth’s economy that can provide benefits to consumers and the environment.
As the electric sector’s emissions of carbon dioxide, nitrogen oxides, and particulates continue to decline, we have an opportunity to build on those environmental improvements and convey them to other sectors of the economy. Virginia’s Electric Cooperatives want to work with a wide array of stakeholders to accomplish that goal.
Beneficial Electrification includes the application of electricity to end-uses where doing so satisfies at least one of the following conditions, without adversely affecting the others:
Saves consumers money over time;
Benefits the environment and reduces greenhouse gas emissions;
Improves product quality or consumer quality of life;
Fosters a more robust and resilient grid.
