The company is the parent of Washington Gas, a regulated utility serving 1 million customers in Maryland, Virginia and the District. It also operates subsidiaries that provide energy-related services such as solar. The company has set a goal of reducing its greenhouse gas emissions by 70 percent. Toward that end, last summer it opened a new operation center in Springfield, powered by Bloom Energy Server, that converts natural gas to electricity. WGL is also replacing its gasoline vehicles with natural gas ones.


In November, NVR announced that Mel R. Martinez, the former U.S. Senator and secretary of the Department of Housing and Urban Development, would joint its board.
