Green Power in the District

Green power is a type of renewable energy with the highest positive environmental impact. EPA definese this as: “as electricity produced from solar, wind, geothermal, biogas, eligible biomass, and low-impact small hydroelectric sources. To qualify as green power, this renewable electricity must also go above and beyond what is otherwise required by mandate or requirement.”

The District’s energy market is deregulated, which means customers can choose to buy energy from different suppliers. All energy suppliers are required to comply with the District’s Renewable Portfolio Standard (RPS), which dictates they must sell a certain amount of green power each year. Customers may choose to purchase more green power (above the current RPS rate) from a third-party energy supplier.

Keep DC the Nation's #1 Green Power Purchaser!

The competition remains fierce! We lead the country in the EPA’s Green Power Community Challenge, but other cities are gaining on us. In the summer of 2011, Mayor Gray challenged District residents and businesses to increase our green power purchases 33%. Collectively, we’ve met that challenge. As of April 21, 2014 Washington, DC retains our position as the nation's #1 Green Power Community, with over 1 billion kilowatt hours of clean energy purchases comprising 12% of all electricity sold in the city. Help us maintain that momentum, on the way to our 50% renewable energy goal by 2032!

We All Benefit:

Every resident, business, and institution choosing green power helps to clean our air, supports renewable energy, and creates jobs in the new clean energy economy. Make the switch to clean energy by selecting a green power provider by August 31, 2011. Non-residential customers are also encouraged to sign-up with the EPA Green Power Partnership to help us meet our goal.
