Clinton will implement a number of federal government initiatives to help achieve these goals, including partnerships with states, leading urban and rural communities in clean energy, provide competitive grants to states that exceed federal carbon pollution standards to award Awards to communities that are easier and cheaper to install roof solar systems, enhance grid reliability and resilience, and make it easier to reduce costs

Clinton\'s plan was proposed by another Democratic candidate, the former governor of Maryland.
Martin O\'Malley has promised to completely stop relying on fossil fuels by 2050 and double the energy efficiency of the United States within 15 years.
O\'Malley promised that the whole country would use renewable energy within 35 years, not Clinton\'s commitment to power every household with renewable energy within 10 years.
Although Clinton did not disclose the full content of her policy on climate change, O\'Malley said he would reject drilling permits on Alaska and the Antarctic coast and promised not to build the Keystone XL pipeline.
Clinton has yet to say what she will do with the pipeline.
