In 12 years, DC will have 100% renewable energy

The gap between Congress in the District of Columbia and DC itself is astounding. The District has a climate action plan; Congress not so much. The District has a renewable energy standard; Congress nada. The District has declared it will be run on 100% renewable energy by 2032.

“I think it’s especially interesting because less than three years ago, [D.C.’s] renewable portfolio standard for 2032 was 50%,” says Jay Orfield, who works with the communities program at the nonprofit NRDC. “I think that speaks to a number of elements in support of renewables–the pricing continuing to come down, but then also realizing that action on climate change needs to be ramped up.”
