American cities backing clean energy


The number of American cities committing to 100% renewable energy use continues to grow. Santa Barbara – in California – is the latest to pledge its support to the sustainability cause.

Earlier this year Chicago’s Mayor pledged to have public buildings running off 100% renewable electricity by 2025. Santa Barbara joins Chicago and other Californian cities, including San Francisco and San Diego, in backing a green future. The city wants to shift to 100% renewables by 2030.

“President Trump may be withdrawing the U.S. from the Paris Climate Accord, but cities are stepping up and re-committing to adopt, honor and uphold the Paris climate goals. I’m proud that Santa Barbara just adopted a 100% renewable energy goal and is joining other cities across the nation leading the way on clean energy at the local level,” said Santa Barbara Mayor Helene Schneider.
