“Since MVP was announced a decade ago, the Virginia Chamber has championed the project to help meet the energy demands of working families and small and large businesses across the commonwealth. Not only is natural gas a cleaner burning fuel than other traditional energy sources, it also is an affordable, reliable heating and power source. The completion and operation of the MVP is a big win for Virginia. The project will provide the additional supply of natural gas necessary to allow businesses to increase efficiency, boost output, and pass along savings to consumers while strengthening U.S. energy independence. In addition, this transformative project will advance long-term economic growth in Virginia.”
