Telebriefing, New Report on Atlantic Coast Pipeline in Hampton Roads

Author of new report joins community members to evaluate case for Southside Connector

 

NORFOLK, VA. — On Tuesday, September 10, at 11 a.m., the author of a new report on the proposed Atlantic Coast Pipeline extension to Hampton Roads will participate in a telebriefing with local community members and leaders. Liz Stanton, founder and director of the Applied Economics Clinic, will be joined by Norfolk City Councilwoman Angelia Williams Graves and impacted community members, including a Berkley, Va. resident who lives on the proposed pipeline route.

The Applied Economics Clinic report set out to answer the question of whether Hampton Roads’ electric or gas supply is at risk without increased supply from a new gas pipeline. The report concludes that Virginia Natural Gas, a subsidiary of Dominion Energy, has ample gas pipeline capacity and has previously overstated future peak demand.

Local community members and leaders will provide their perspective on the report and the potential impact of the proposed pipeline extension.
