Ultimately, the Clean Coalition envisions the United States being 100% powered by renewable energy, substantially from local sources. To make this goal a reality, we are working to achieve these objectives by 2025:
- From 2025 onward, at least 80% of all electricity generated from newly added generation capacity in the United States will be from renewable energy sources.
- From 2025 onward, at least 25% of all electricity generated from newly added generation capacity in the United States will be from local renewable energy sources. Locally generated electricity does not travel over the transmission grid to get from the location it is generated to where it is consumed.
- By 2025, policies and programs are well established for ensuring successful fulfillment of the other two objectives. Policies reflect the full value of local renewable energy, and programs prove the superiority of local energy systems in terms of economics, environment, and resilience — as well as timeliness.
