Virginia Department of Environmental Quality: Clean Power Plan Homepage

According to Dominion Virginia Power, they could increase carbon levels 83 percent while still meeting federal climate standards. Dominion put together five scenarios. Plan B, which the company has suggested would be the best compliance plan for customers, would keep coal facilities running, build new natural gas plants and add a smaller amount of solar power. It would be the cheapest alternative, but it would also dramatically increase GHG emissions. Carbon emissions from the company would increase from 26.7 million tons per year in 2012 to 49 million tons per year in 2041 under the plan – October 5, 2016
