Norman says yes to renewables

(USA)

Norman has signed up to the American clean power movement.

The city in Oklahoma is the first in the state, and the 69th in the US, to commit to 100% renewable energy. The city council has endorsed a resolution to so by 2035 for electricity, and by 2050 for all sectors.

“Momentum is building for 100% clean energy across the US and Norman showed it is a leader in Oklahoma by being the first city in the state to commit to this goal. Norman’s commitment to renewable energy is also a commitment to clean air, economic development, and a healthy future for our community. After a year of engagement from the community and City of Norman, this vote is a victory for everyone,” said Karen Blasier, volunteer with the Norman Ready for 100 campaign.
