Time is running out.
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 Clean Energy DC Omnibus Amendment Act of 2018, or “Clean Energy DC Act,” will make DC a world leader on climate change. It would transition 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.
D.C. has strong carbon reduction goals, but is currently not on path to achieve them. 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.
