Josephus handles solar cases at the State Corporation Commission (SCC), which regulates utilities in Virginia. He assists with air and energy related work in front of the SCC as well. He participates in agency-led stakeholder processes on behalf of SELC and in agency-led rule making and permitting processes.
Josephus also works with the Virginia Environmental Justice Collaborative and a highlight of his SELC work was the State Air Pollution Control Board’s denial of an air permit for the Lambert Compressor Station on environmental justice grounds.
“Since I began to learn more about climate change as an undergrad, I’ve felt strongly that climate change is the most pressing issue for our generation,” he says.
I am so grateful that I get to work with an organization that is doing the difficult work to address climate change.Josephus Allmond
Josephus grew up in Chico, Calif. and now lives in Charlottesville’s Belmont neighborhood. The Rivanna River and Trail is a favorite outdoors spot. “I’ve loved exploring this ‘urban wilderness’ hiking trail and floating the river on hot summer days,” Josephus says.
