This program will examine next steps in implementing D.C.'s Clean Energy Omnibus Amendment Act of 2018 (CEDC Act), including administrative, regulatory, and fiscal aspects. We will also consider the influence of "Green New Deal" principles in D.C., including environmental justice, workforce development, and advancement of solar and other renewable energy. We will consider the question of who pays for environmental advancements, in all communities.
