Washington D.C. Moves Forward With Goal of 100 Percent Renewable Energy by 2032

By Carly Sitzer

Lawmakers in Washington D.C. ended 2018 on a sustainable note; the City Council of the District of Columbia voted in favor of passing the Clean Energy Omnibus Amendment Act of 2018, which will implement a goal of 100 percent renewable energy by 2032. 

According to a press release put out by Mary Cheh, the council member responsible for the legislation, the new plan is the “most ambitious renewable energy policy in the country.” 

In addition to the ambitious renewable target, the bill also aims for a 10 percent solar energy carve-out by 2041, and commands zero-emissions public transportation by 2045.
