Grid Modernization

The Commission’s top priority is modernizing the District’s distribution energy delivery system.  Our goals are to ensure that our energy delivery system remains safe, reliable, and affordable while also becoming more sustainable, interactive, and secure. These goals are linked to the District of Columbia’s energy and climate action policies as articulated in the Clean Energy DC Plan.

PowerPath DC is the Commission’s grid modernization proceeding  that outlines the critical next steps to achieve a reliable, sustainable and resilient distribution energy delivery system in the District.

Prioritizing electric vehicle adoption and improving charging infrastructure in the District are key to reducing fossil fuel dependence, energy costs, air pollution, and greenhouse gas emissions in the city.

The Whole Building Deep Energy Retrofit Program is an energy efficiency and energy conservation program that modernizes affordable multifamily buildings in D.C. to make them more efficient as well as help fight climate change.
