In 2006, Washington citizens passed Initiative 937, the Energy Independence Act (EIA), which needs Washington’s biggest electrical energies to create 15% of their electrical energy from brand-new renewable resource resources such as wind and solar energy by 2020 and to purchase all cost-efficient energy performance. The EIA has actually shown to be Washington’s most efficient tool in minimizing contamination and greenhouse gas emissions. At the exact same time it’s:.
— Driving billions of dollars in tidy energy financial investments.
— Supporting 10s of countless tasks.
— Helping Washington keep steady and low electrical rates.
