With the passage of the Clean Energy DC Act on January 18th, DC’s already-strong leadership on clean energy rose even higher. The ambitious law puts the city of Washington, DC on track to run on 100% clean energy by 2032, provides incentives for fuel-efficient vehicles, and pushes not only new buildings but existing buildings to go green. Jamie DeMarco and Chelsea Hodgkins do a deep dive into the new law — and the role of grass roots advocates in getting it passed.
