Virginia Recovery Act State Memo

Virginia has substantial natural resources, including coal and natural gas. The American Recovery & Reinvestment Act (ARRA) is making a meaningful down payment on the nation’s energy and environmental future. The Recovery Act investments in Virginia are supporting a broad range of clean energy projects, from energy efficiency and the smart grid to alternative fuel vehicles and the Thomas Jefferson National Accelerator Facility in Newport News. Through these investments, Virginia’s businesses, universities, non‐profits, and local governments are creating quality jobs today and positioning Virginia to play an important role in the new energy economy of the future.
