D.C. Makes Moves Towards Going 100% Renewable Energy By 2030

Lawmakers in Washington D.C. are proposing one of the nation’s most aggressive plans to cut carbon emissions. The “Clean Energy D.C. Act” would roll out the strongest renewable electricity standard in the United States, making the nation’s capital a world leader on climate change and put them on an accelerated timeline to 100 percent renewable energy by 2032.

“This bill provides the bold action needed to match the urgency of the climate crisis. It builds on the Clean Energy D.C. plan and the District’s 12-year legacy of clean energy and green building policy achievement, again blazing a path for other cities to follow,” said Cliff Majersik, Executive Director of the Institute for Market Transformation in a statement.
