Now is the time to become active in fighting for the health of our planet! The Prince William Chapter of CCL welcomes new members to help in our efforts to advocacy at the local, state and federal levels for the reduction of carbon pollution in our atmosphere and the extensive utilization of clean and renewable energy.

We have established relationships with Congressional leaders and meet with them regularly to advocate for the support or co-sponsorship of HR 763, the Energy Innovation and Carbon Dividend Act. These Congressional leaders are Jennifer Wexton, Mark Warner, Tim Kaine and Jerry Connelly. 

We have also been very active in developing relationships with the Prince William Board of County Supervisors. The PWC BOCS recently adopted a climate resolution that was submitted by Supervisor Boddye.

The resolution states:
"that the Prince William Board of County Supervisors hereby endorses the Metropolitan Washington Council of Governments’ interim climate mitigation goal of 50 percent greenhouse gas emission reductions below 2005 levels by 2030".

It further resolves "that the Prince William Board of County Supervisors directs staff to incorporate into the Comprehensive Plan goals of 100% of Prince William County’s electricity to be from renewable sources by 2035, for Prince William County Government operations to achieve 100% renewable electricity by 2030, and for Prince William County Government to be 100% carbon neutral by 2050".

It also directs staff to begin work on the creation of a public advisory body charged with advising on potential enhancements to the Community Energy Master Plan (CEMP) to achieve the goals of the above-stated Comprehensive Plan changes and calls for the incorporation of equity principles and environmental justice into the Community Energy Master Plan (CEMP) as well as the entire Comprehensive Plan.

If our county government is to achieve these goals there is a lot of work ahead and quick action will be required. Our chapter will continue to advocate for the achievement of the climate change mitigation goals that are stated in this resolution.
