 About Dominion Energy

Dominion Energy, Inc., and its many subsidiaries are collectively one of the nation’s largest producers and transporters of energy, including natural gas distribution, electric generation, and electricity transmission and distribution. Dominion Energy and its subsidiaries have a long history of service to individuals and the communities in which we operate. Dominion Energy also seeks to improve service through innovation, and to protect the environment while providing high-quality service.

 As a forward-thinking company, Dominion Energy recognizes the communities we serve are shifting in a variety of key demographics, and as these communities evolve, we are dedicated to ensuring our future workforce also expands to better represent and serve our customer base.  Diversity is enmeshed within each of our core values – Safety, Ethics, Excellence, One Dominion, and Embracing Change. We are ultimately striving for a workplace that is not only diverse in metrics, but a place that is truly inclusive – recognizing, valuing, celebrating and embracing our differences.  We seek to maximize opportunities for diverse persons at every level of operation. Diverse applicants are strongly encouraged to apply.

We are committed to achieving net-zero emissions (balancing carbon emissions with carbon removal) by 2050 while continuing to deliver clean, safe, reliable and affordable energy. Net zero emissions will benefit our planet, along with our customers, communities, employees and investors. Some of the ways we're showing our commitment to clean energy include: 

Offshore Wind
Wind turbines use spinning blades to "catch" the kinetic energy of the wind and convert it to electrical energy. We're investing in offshore wind power because it’s an abundant renewable resource that is also emissions-free. We have the largest offshore wind farm under development in the United States. Turbines in our offshore wind project off the coast of Virginia could power 650,000 homes by 2026 - with plans to double that by 2035. Watch a video about this offshore wind project.

Solar Generation
Dominion Energy is placing a priority on development of renewable energy. In just one year, we've quadrupled the amount of solar and wind generation in our 15-year plan. Our solar fleet, already the 3rd largest among US utility holding companies, will grow from a current output of 396 megawatts to approximately 16,000 megawatts by 2035.

Nuclear Energy
Our nuclear power program produces a safe, zero-emissions, highly reliable form of renewable energy for our customers—in fact, 40% of our total electricity output comes from our nuclear power stations.

Electric Vehicles
As plug-in electric vehicles (EVs) gain popularity, we're committed to studying and responding to customer interest in this zero-emission technology. Use our EV Toolkit to calculate savings, compare models, find incentives and more.
