Jigar Shah, nationally respected renewable energy business leader, has endorsed Washington State Initiative 732. “Putting a solid price on carbon pollution, as Carbon Washington’s I-732 does, would massively accelerate the shift to clean energy.” says Shah, who advocates using innovative business models, combined with smart policies, to rapidly scale up deployment of current renewable energy technologies in an economically sustainable way.
Carbon Washington has reached its signature goal of 330,000 signatures, reporting a total of 334,000 signatures in-hand! 246,372 valid signatures are needed to qualify I-732, so campaign staff is pushing towards a stretch goal of 350,000 to build up a signature cushion.

We have reached an incredible milestone – 256,471 signatures. We would not be here without our incredible volunteers, whose hard work and dedication have been unbelievably inspiring. While we’re proud of what we’ve accomplished, there is still a lot of work to achieve our signature goal of 330,000.
