American cities continue to lead the country’s renewable energy revolution.
The City of Fayetteville is the latest in the US to commit to shifting to 100% renewable energy, and is the first Arkansas municipality to do so.
Speaking about Fayetteville’s pledge to move government operations to 100% clean energy by 2030, and the whole community to renewable power by 2050, Mayor Lioneld Jordan said: “Fayetteville has shown leadership in climate change adaptation and mitigation in a variety of ways. We’ve installed electric vehicle charging stations around the City, signed onto the Sierra Club’s ‘Mayors for 100% Clean Energy’ pledge, promoted energy efficiency programs for homes and businesses, and much more. The Energy Action Plan is another bold step in our efforts to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and improve the quality of life for all Fayetteville citizens, present and future.”
Fayetteville is the 54th city in America to make the move, joining the likes of Santa Barbara, Chicago, San Francisco and San Diego.
