Our Engagement Process
We work hard to limit impacts on the environment, landowners and communities. To make sure we better understand our stakeholders’ perspectives, we hold public meetings with the communities in which we operate, reach out to a wide range of groups, and are implementing new processes that will help us coordinate with those whose voice is not always heard.
|In 2018, with stakeholders, improvements to our community engagement processes will be identified and implemented. We also will continue to work closely with landowners to minimize impact to their property as we expand both electric and gas infrastructure.||We continued our outreach efforts for the Atlantic Coast Pipeline. We held 25 outreach events concerning our electric transmission projects, attended by nearly 700 people, and held dozens of community meetings to obtain input on our strategic undergrounding program. An environmental justice working group has been established to continue to improve our community engagement process.|
We will continue to work with stakeholders to improve the way we engage with our neighbors. We also will continue to work closely with landowners to reasonably minimize impact to their property as we expand and modernize electric and gas infrastructure. We will further refine our engagement processes, and continue working with landowners to reach mutually acceptable agreements.
