The measure also makes renewable powered generation facilities located outside of the Commonwealth, except offshore wind facilities located in waters off the Commonwealth's shoreline, ineligible for certain cost recovery and enhanced rate of return incentives in the Virginia Electric Utility Regulation Act.
