VPLC has several initiatives to help better serve communities around Virginia.


virginia clean energy project logo

Affordable Clean Energy Project (ACE Project) is a program of VPLC that works to insert and amplify the voice of lower income Virginians into the decisions being made around energy costs, and cost-savings and energy efficiency initiatives. Low income households pay in some cases three times as much for energy as a proportion of their income as higher income households. This project aims to enhance the thought and actions to reduce that disparity and help lower income rate-payers to get the most affordable and cleanest energy possible in a collaborative way.
