Description:

NEXT CLIMATE ACTION COFFEE EVENT: COMMUNITY CHOICE ENERGY BILL—A GAME CHANGER IN THE TRANSITION TO GREEN

Wednesday, January 15, 2020, 7:30 – 9:00 a.m.
Busboys and Poets, Takoma
235 Carroll St NW, DC

Join us for a conversation about Community Choice Energy with Lily Hawkins of Food & Water Action and Gina Mathias, Takoma Park’s Sustainability Manager, on Wednesday, January 15.

Community Choice Energy (CCE), a bill sponsored by Delegate Lorig Charkoudian and by Senator Pamela Beidle, could enable Maryland to quickly transition to renewable energy and greatly reduce energy costs for Maryland consumers. CCE enables communities to establish energy aggregation programs, like others already operating successfully around the country. It would allow local governments to directly negotiate with utilities, driving down rates for consumers and enabling investment in clean, renewable energy. The City of Takoma Park and Montgomery County support the bill. Gina Mathias will discuss the importance of the CCE in reaching Takoma Park’s goal to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 100% by 2035, and will discuss her sustainability plan that she will propose to the City Council on January 22.
