Energy Sure, Update on Atlantic Coast Pipeline

1/19/2017

 

       

We don’t have to tell you—when completed, the Atlantic Coast Pipeline (ACP) will be an economic game-changer for our region – bringing new industries, thousands of new jobs and millions in new tax revenue to our communities. Even before then, pipeline construction will support tens of thousands of jobs and billions of dollars in economic stimulus for communities along the route.



The ACP Team is dedicated to building this pipeline with the support of local workers and local businesses – from welders and equipment operators to concrete suppliers and hauling service providers. This past December, the ACP Team and lead contractor Spring Ridge Constructors (SRC) kicked off the project with seven Construction Expo events in towns along the route in West Virginia, Virginia and North Carolina.

More than 1,000 local residents and businesses turned out for the expos, where they learned about the hiring process and construction timeline, and how they can get involved.



If you missed the Construction Expo events, but still want to work with the ACP as a vendor or supplier, it’s not too late! Submit your application and learn more here: dom.com/acpvendor

Remember, these opportunities for our local communities depend on the project’s approval from Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC). Send a letter to FERC to let them know you support the ACP and American energy!



As always, thank you for your support.
