RICHMOND, Va. – Dominion Energy released the following statement to correct inaccuracies perpetuated by the Sierra Club and the Southern Environmental Law Center regarding the State Corporation Commission’s Dec. 7th order on the company’s 2018 Integrated Resource Plan.
“The Sierra Club and the Southern Environmental Law Center have made inaccurate statements that misled the public about the Atlantic Coast Pipeline (ACP).
They took a footnote from the State Corporation Commission’s (SCC) order out of context, distorting facts to confuse and misinform the public.
The SCC’s order made no factual findings with regard to the ACP and the Sierra Club and SELC know it. Instead of supporting Dominion Energy and policymaker’s push for carbon-free generation, they are distorting the SCC’s official order to pander to their donor base without regard for the truth.”
