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.
