D.C. City Council Passes Historic 100 Percent Renewable Electricity Bill

WASHINGTON, D.C. – (RealEstateRama) — The Solar Energy Industries Association (SEIA) welcomed the Washington, D.C. City Council’s passage of a landmark bill that will move the District to 100 percent renewable electricity by 2032, including specific requirements to grow solar energy.

SEIA

Following is a statement by Abigail Ross Hopper, SEIA’s president and CEO:

“The D.C. City Council has just passed some of the strongest clean energy legislation in the country. Moving to 100 percent renewables is not only doable, but doable at a much faster pace than many recognize, and D.C. is taking a clear lead. This historic legislation can serve as a model for other states and cities looking to build on their clean energy goals.

“It’s noteworthy that this bill helps ensure solar energy is accessible to all residents in the District, including low-income residents, which is a priority for us. Given that much of SEIA’s team lives and works in the D.C. area — including some staff who have dedicated their own time to advocate for and strengthen this legislation — this milestone is especially meaningful for us.”
