    Gov. Terry McAuliffe is formally rolling out his energy plan for Virginia.

    Released two weeks ago, the McAuliffe energy blueprint will be presented Tuesday at the Science Museum of Virginia in Richmond. The event is sponsored by the Virginia Chamber of Commerce and the Virginia League of Conservation Voters.

    Democrat McAuliffe embraces an ``all of the above'' strategy that promotes greater use of renewable generation such as solar and wind, efficiency and traditional sources of energy such as natural gas.

    McAuliffe casts energy development as an economic driver that will create tens of thousands of jobs, generate hundreds of millions of dollars and bring new industry to the state.
