Northam Calling For All Renewable Energy By 2050

(Richmond)- Governor Northam wants the state to rely strictly on renewable energy sources by 2050. Northam introduced an executive order at the Virginia Clean Energy Summit yesterday. A more immediate goal will be to use carbon-free energy sources for 30-percent of the state’s electricity by 2030. Environmental activists applauded the order, but still criticized two on-going natural gas pipeline projects in the Commonwealth.
