Last week, Governor Terry McAuliffe signed eleven bills that promote the use of renewable energy – solar and wind power – but the latest plans from Dominion Virginia Power suggest on-going reliance on fossil fuels and nuclear plants. Sandy Hausman reports on why the company is moving slowly on green energy and what environmentalists wish the state’s largest utility would do.
