    EPA Selects Dominion Virginia Power As a 2013 Green Power Supplier of the Year

    RICHMOND, Va., Sept. 24, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Dominion Virginia Power has been named a 2013 Green Power Supplier of the Year by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. The award recognizes green power suppliers that are leaders in offering voluntary renewable energy to their customers.

    "This award speaks volumes about the 19,000 customers in Virginia who have chosen to support renewable energy development in Virginia," said Ken Barker, vice president – Customer Solutions and Energy Conservation. "We are proud to be able to provide our Dominion Green Power® program as an innovative way for our customers to have a positive impact on the planet and support renewable energy to meet some or all of their home's energy needs."

    "EPA is pleased to recognize Dominion Virginia Power's Green Power® program with a Green Power Supplier of the Year award for its innovative leadership in expanding the nation's renewable energy industry," said EPA Administrator Gina McCarthy. "Through its support and development of new renewable energy capacity, Dominion Green Power is taking action against climate change and putting our country on a path to a clean energy future."

    Since the program's inception in 2009, participants have supported more than 593,000 megawatt-hours of renewable energy. The generation of this green power has prevented the same amount of carbon dioxide from entering the air as removing 80,400 average cars from the road for one year, or the equivalent environmental impact of planting 10.7 million trees that grow to maturity.

    The Dominion Green Power Program® offers customers the option to match their home electricity use with renewable energy by either usage or in fixed monthly amounts. The fixed option starts at $2 and can be increased in $2 increments up to the customers' total energy usage. Each $2 block supports 154 kilowatt-hours of green power. The option based on usage adds 1.
