2019: Washington passes 100% Clean Electricity Legislation

The Washington State Legislature passed the strongest clean electricity bill in the nation. The 100% clean electricity legislation will eliminate coal power by 2025 and transition the state to 100% clean and renewable electricity by 2045. The state’s commitment to clean electricity will boost jobs and strengthen energy equity through energy assistance programs for low income households and equity considerations in the planning and acquisition of new sources of electricity. The bill also ensures new clean energy jobs that include strong worker protections and pay family wages.
