Coastal Virginia Offshore Wind Project Moves Forward

Dominion Energy's Coastal Virginia Offshore Wind Pilot Turbines

Dominion Energy’s Coastal Virginia Offshore Wind (CVOW) project has received a favorable record of decision from the Bureau of Ocean Energy Management (BOEM). This is the last major milestone before BOEM approves the construction and operations plan, which authorizes construction to begin offshore. Upon completion in 2026, the 2.6-GW CVOW project will generate enough renewable energy to power up to 660,000 homes.


“Receiving a favorable record of decision from the BOEM is a monumental achievement for Dominion Energy and the Coastal Virginia Offshore Wind team. More than a decade of work has gone into the development, design, and permitting of CVOW,” said Bob Blue, Dominion Energy’s chair, president, and chief executive officer. “Offshore wind is a vital part of our strategy to provide our customers with a diverse fuel mix that delivers reliable, affordable, and increasingly clean energy.”
