Count me in!

Dear Robert,

In just a couple weeks, an exciting and unprecedented opportunity to explore the potential and promise of offshore wind power will be available to you.

I invite you to enjoy a town hall meeting to learn more about Virginia offshore wind power. At the town hall, you will hear from state and federal government officials, business and union leaders – all addressing the questions of why offshore wind? Why Virginia? And how can we make it happen?

Enjoy an evening of clean energy enthusiasm on Monday, July 30 at Hampton University! RSVP now to secure your spot.

A star-studded panel of speakers will be moderated by Adam Forrer, the manager of the Atlantic Region of the Southeastern Wind Coalition. Panelists include myself, Casey Reeves, a Project Manager at the Bureau of Ocean Energy Management, David Harriss, the Director of Break-Bulk Sales & Services at the Port of Virginia and Anna Fendley, a Legislative Representative with the United Steelworkers.

Developing this clean energy resource would allow Virginia and the U.S. to quickly meet carbon reduction goals while creating thousands of new jobs and business opportunities. RSVP now to hear from experts about how offshore wind can transform the Hampton Roads economy!

This isn't your only chance to learn more! The previous week, on July 23, we are hosting another town hall in Virginia Beach, with a panel again moderated by Adam Forrer. Panelists in Virginia Beach include myself, Hayes Framme, the Government Relations Communications Manager for ├śrsted Energy, Will Payne, Chief Deputy of the Virginia Department of Mines, Minerals and Energy and Jim Spore, the President and CEO of ReInvent Hampton Roads. Visit this page to learn more about the July 23 town hall.

Virginia’s offshore wind area, if fully developed, could power about half a million Virginian homes. The time is now for the clean energy revolution throughout the Commonwealth. Together, we can get educated, get engaged and make Virginia offshore wind a reality.

I hope to see you soon,

Eileen Woll
