D.C.

The District of Columbia, home to more than 700,000 people, is a hot spot for local climate action and has some of the nation’s strongest goals to curb carbon pollution and advance clean energy. CCAN activists in DC have played keys roles in ensuring the District gets 50% of its electricity from clean sources by 2032 and closing dirty loopholes in DC’s most important clean energy law.

We Brought DC to 100% Renewable Energy by 2032 with the “Clean Energy DC Act”

We won! In December, 2017, Washington D.C. passed the strongest climate policy in the country. The Clean Energy DC Omnibus Amendment Act of 2018, or “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. This law transitions the District to 100% clean electricity by 2032 — the strongest renewable energy policy 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. Learn more>>
