Summary

Fuel Disclosure: Virginia’s 1999 electric industry restructuring law requires the state's electricity providers to disclose -- "to the extent feasible" -- fuel mix and emissions data regarding electric generation. Legislation in 2007 and 2008 related to Electric Utility Regulation amended the restructuring laws, but still require emissions and fuel mix disclosure. Information must be provided to customers and to the Virginia State Corporation Commission (SCC) at least once annually. If any portion of this information is unavailable, the electricity provider must file a report with the SCC explaining why that information is not available.

Renewable energy purchase options: House Bill enacted in March 2016 requires the Commission to post the information of electric competitive service providers that offer renewable energy on the Commission website. Each utility will also provide information about purchase options of renewable energy offered by the utility on its website.
