The nation’s capitol is close to mandating that PEPCO serve the district’s entire electric demand with renewables by 2032 – and that all vehicle fleets in the city go 100% low-or-zero emissions by 2045. But the bill isn’t done yet.
On the same day that the U.S. Senate Energy and Natural Resources Committee voted to advance the nomination of a career fossil fuel propagandist to serve on the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC), the city council in the very city where this was happening voted to provide initial approval of the nation’s most aggressive renewable energy target, with 12 in favor and 1 absent.
Under the CleanEnergy DC Omnibus Amendment Act of 2018, Washington D.C. utility PEPCO would have to source 100% of the electricity that it uses to serve the city from renewables by 2032 – a doubling of the current 50%.
