Solar + storage in D.C.
What is solar + battery storage?
Solar systems with battery backup can provide individuals and communities with much needed resiliency in the face of natural disasters.
Progress in D.C.
The D.C. Department of Energy and Environment has produced a plan, Clean Energy DC, for transitioning the District to clean energy, focusing on specific policy actions. Clean Energy DC is a roadmap to help meet the District’s greenhouse gas emission targets, while also, “encouraging innovation, efficiency, and resiliency.” A major piece of the plan is to improve our energy system by incorporating microgrids and storage solutions.
