The Washington, D.C. city council has unanimously approved an ordinance that will more than double the city’s current renewable energy target. The city now aims to get 50 percent of its power from renewables by 2032. The measure creates incentives for 1,500 MW of new solar and wind power, and it also establishes a “Solar for All” program designed to cut the electric bills of 100,000 low-income households in half by 2032 through the use of conservation and clean energy resources. Said one solar developer: “Washington, D.C. is already seeing a solar boom, and it’s about to get a whole lot bigger.”
