Earth Day: Legislature passes clean electricity bill

Tuesday, April 23, 2019

The Washington state legislature just passed the strongest clean electricity bill in the nation.

This precedent-setting policy will transition our electricity grid to 100% clean energy in a way that addresses climate pollution, invests in Washington’s workers, and addresses historic inequities as part of the foundation for transitioning our economy to clean and renewable energy.

This landmark legislation:
  • Transitions our entire electric grid to powered by 100 percent clean energy by 2045
  • Phases out coal from our electricity grid by 2025
  • Makes swift progress towards cutting carbon pollution, with strong targets starting in 2030 that holds the utilities accountable
  • Invests in low-income communities through energy assistance programs and requirements around equity analysis in the planning and acquisition of clean energy
  • Incentivizes worker protection in the transition to clean energy
