Climate change threatens the health, homes, and pocketbooks of everyone in DC. We have the power to turn these trends around by passing a climate bill that benefits everyone, from DC businesses to the residents living on the front-lines of climate change.
The DC Climate Coalition banded together to pass the Clean Energy DC Omnibus Amendment Act of 2018, or “Clean Energy DC Act,” which is now law! This policy will make DC a world leader on climate change, by transitioning the District to 100% clean electricity by 2032 — the strongest renewable energy bill in the country — while investing in energy efficiency, creating groundbreaking building standards, and funding local programs to help low-income residents and make the city a sustainable place to live.
The Clean Energy DC Act is a climate solution that will result in less pollution wrecking our lungs and our atmosphere, more investment into energy efficiency solutions, and a faster transition to clean, renewable energy sources.
It’s time for D.C. to lead—not only in cutting fossil fuel pollution, but in creating a more just and sustainable economy for all.
