Orlando is the 40th American city to commit to moving to 100% renewable energy.
Yesterday’s unanimous vote by the Orlando City Commission backed calls to do so by 2050. The decision was greeted with delight by members of the First 50 Coalition – a group spearheaded by the League of Women Voters of Orange County (LWVOC), which supports a sustainable future for central Florida.
“Today, Orlando takes its place on the regional, state and national stage as a forward-thinking city committed to a healthier, sustainable future,” said LWVOC Co-President Carol Davis. “This is a first, important step, and we plan to continue to support and encourage the City to follow with concrete measures that solidify this commitment.”
