Lawsuit Filed Against Dominion Energy Over Wind Power

Conservative groups have filed a lawsuit against Dominion Energy and federal agencies seeking to halt construction of a $9.8 billion offshore wind farm off the Virginia coast. The lawsuit, led by the National Legal and Policy Center, argues that the wind turbines pose a risk to North American right whales, an endangered species. The project, known as the Coastal Virginia Offshore Wind project, has received final approvals, but the plaintiffs are demanding a preliminary injunction. Dominion Energy has responded, asserting that the project underwent thorough environmental review and includes strong protections for marine life.
