The 100% Renewable Energy Act

The 100% Renewable Energy Act (H.2836), filed by Representative Marjorie Decker and Representative Sean Garballey, will transition Massachusetts to 100% renewable electricity by 2035 and 100% renewable energy for heating and transportation by 2045. In addition, it would accelerate the Renewable Portfolio Standard (RPS) to reach 100 percent renewable by 2035 and support job training and workforce development for Massachusetts residents to work in the clean energy sector.

A majority of members of both legislative chambers have cosponsored this bill or similar legislation filed in the Senate by Senator Jamie Eldridge (S.1958).

The Decker/Garballey 100% Renewable Energy Act would build on the example of the 100% renewable electric sector commitments adopted by other states, territories, cities, and counties while going further by transitioning heating and transportation to 100% renewable sources of energy as well.
