Jennifer McClellan and Rip Sullivan column: Repositioning the economy by investing in clean energy jobs

By Jennifer McClellan and Rip Sullivan

Earlier this month, Gov. Ralph Northam signed a historic law: the Virginia Clean Economy Act (VCEA). The biggest step forward in environmental and energy policy in Virginia history, the VCEA passed with bipartisan majorities.

This law makes Virginia one of the top five states in combating climate change, and one of just a handful committed to achieving 100% clean energy by 2045. It will also help Virginians save money on their energy bills and create thousands of jobs.
