Michelle Reade, Miguel Bantigue Market Research Briefs

Virginia is the newest state within the PJM RTO to establish a mandatory RPS target, and the Old Dominion state is aiming high with a goal of 100% renewable energy by 2050 under the Clean Economy Act (HB 1526/HB 851). Governor Ralph Northam signed the bill on April 12, 2020, just 6 months after his 43rd Executive Order which set the wheels in motion for a plan to reach the 100% renewable energy target.
