ICYMI: Youngkin Touts Virginia Energy Plan

Gov. Glenn Youngkin | New York Post

The Biden administration’s Environmental Protection Agency recently released a rehashed version of the Obama “Clean Power Plan,” which the Supreme Court rejected in West Virginia v. EPA just last year.

The new standards would be catastrophic to our nation’s power infrastructure and deepen our dependence on supply chains already dominated by China — furthering Team Biden’s relentless efforts to concede fully one of America’s greatest advantages, energy independence.         

In Virginia, as our economy grows and power needs accelerate, we are leading with a fresh perspective: an All-American, All-of-the-Above Energy Plan that will deliver reliable, affordable and increasingly clean power.

There’s no need to predetermine power-plant retirements on arbitrary timelines as liberal activists desire.

Our Virginia Plan embraces innovative technologies, including small modular reactors, carbon capture, hydrogen and advanced battery storage, and uses all fuel sources, both traditional and renewables, to bring more baseload generation and peaking capacity online while further reducing emissions from existing capacity.

At the same time we’re embracing innovative technologies, we’re not forgetting energy solutions must be affordable for the families and local businesses that use them every day.
