Dominion Wind Project Hits Headwinds

A federal judge in Virginia is set to decide whether Dominion Energy’s Coastal Virginia Offshore Wind project can proceed as planned. The $9.8 billion wind farm faces legal challenges from conservative groups alleging insufficient environmental approvals. The project, touted as a critical renewable energy source, could power up to 660,000 homes if it is completed as planned in 2026. The judge’s decision will determine if construction will be delayed amid concerns over impacts to endangered species like the North Atlantic right whale.
