This report identifies, collects, and summarizes all the equity-related provisions that have been included in the legislation and executive orders that have established 100% clean energy goals in 20 states and the District of Columbia. The new Clean Energy States Alliance (CESA) report is based on a review of all the 100% state clean energy legislation and executive orders. The report outlines different state definitions of equity and environmental justice, proposed mitigation solutions, and planning and implementation processes. It does not assess the quality or effectiveness of any particular policy.
By condensing information from many states in one place, the report “Equity in State 100% Clean Energy Legislation and Executive Orders” can help stakeholders understand what has been done so far and what could be done in future policy development. This report was produced for the 100% Clean Energy Collaborative, an initiative that CESA created to assist states that have deep decarbonization goals.
