Tell The DC Council:

It's time to move beyond gas.

The DC Council is considering the Healthy Homes Act, which will protect DC residents from the climate and public health threat of burning fossil fuels in our homes. This legislation would allow low- and moderate income DC households to switch from fossil fuels to clean and efficient electric heating and upgrade to electric appliances with no out-of-pocket costs, including for purchase and installation.
The Council must pass and fund the Healthy Homes Act without delay, and your Councilmembers need to hear from you!

Our Mission:

Move DC Beyond Fracked Gas

DC’s electricity is headed toward 100% renewable sources like wind and solar. But we’re still burning fracked methane gas to heat buildings, cook our food, and power other appliances – causing about a quarter of DC’s climate pollution. Burning fossil fuels in our homes and buildings contributes to the climate crisis and harms our health.

Meeting DC’s climate commitment of carbon neutrality by 2045 will require DC to move from fossil fuels to a clean energy future.

Beyond Gas DC is working to ensure DC sees the climate, public health, and money-saving benefits of transitioning to clean and efficient energy in our buildings. Beyond Gas DC is made up of a coalition of environmental, faith, and community groups organizing a grassroots movement to transition off dirty fuel.
