Power bills rising to pay for renewable mandates
NBC12 News reported the story in May 2020 saying "Customers of Dominion Energy Virginia can expect their bills to increase by an average of about 3% annually over the next 10 years as the company changes its generation mix to comply with new renewable energy mandates, Dominion recently told regulators and lawmakers."
While we agree, working to reach net zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2050 is a great environmental goal to have, it is a bit unfortunate to be at the expense of our pockets as the customers of such wealthy organizations. These power companies have been raising their rates for years and now they continue to do so in the name of clean energy and sustainability.
The good news is you have options and they are actually pretty simple. You can do nothing and stay on track to pay these increases with the power company or you may be able to lock in your current power rate with solar. If your property qualifies you may be able to take advantage of local and federal incentives to become your own clean energy power source and become less dependent on energy from the grid.
