100% Renewable Energy - is it for Fitchburg?
The City of Fitchburg Resolution to Address Global Climate Change through Clean Energy (R-26-19) was introduced to Common Council on January 22, 2019. The resolution allows the City to develop an Energy and Water Plan that includes a resiliency/sustainability and adaptation plan to deal with anticipated climate changes. It is an extension of the City's commitment in 2008 to use 25% of our municipal energy from renewable sources by 2025 through the State of Wisconsin's 25x25 Energy Independent Community Pledge.
The 100% Renewable Energy Resolution would be a strong step toward action by setting ambitious, achievable targets for energy use reduction and renewable energy generation for city operations and the community as a whole.
