Pepco has a variety of initiatives underway to support the District of Columbia's climate change, clean energy, inclusive innovation and resilience goals. These initiatives are enabling the deployment of clean energy technologies and advanced energy solutions to the benefit of all customers, greening local communities, and building resilience, while focusing on the leading sources of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions.
The District of Columbia launched its Carbon Free DC roadmap, which includes policies and recommended actions for the District to "Be Clean, Be Lean and Be Green." Pepco has a significant role to play in helping to achieve these goals in partnership and collaboration with others, including through efforts to 1) educate District residents as to what they can do to reduce their energy use and help them take action, such as through the Reduce Energy Use DC initiative, 2) build out the electric public charging network to enable widespread transportation electrification, 3) support community efforts to increase the tree canopy and preserve open space, 4) enable clean energy technologies for all Washingtonians, including electrified transit, battery storage and community solar, and 5) increase energy affordability, improve local air quality and enhance community resilience.
Pepco is also making the District of Columbia's infrastructure more resilient to climate change, by investing in grid modernization to make it smarter, stronger and cleaner, including through dedicated initiatives such as DC PLUG and Capital Grid, and the newly launched Distribution System Planning process, resulting from PowerPath DC.
Pepco is committed to supporting the District of Columbia's climate change, clean energy, inclusive innovation and resilience goals, making it the greenest, healthiest and most livable city in the United States.
