U.S. Energy Storage Association (ESA) Interim CEO Jason Burwen Statement on Passage of SB 1201 and HB 2006

“The passage of SB 1201 and HB 2006 is another key step by the Virginia Legislature to drive the development of energy storage in the Commonwealth. Following on the nation’s biggest target for energy storage deployment, enacted through the 2020 Virginia Clean Economy Act, this legislation will give storage developers the tax certainty they need to finance significant investments in Virginia communities, as well as support those communities with additional tax revenues to invest in schools and local infrastructure. We look forward to working with Virginia lawmakers and Governor Northam to ensure that the energy storage industry is rolling up our sleeves to deliver on the promise of Virginia’s clean energy transformation.”
