Florida’s capital city has become the 108th in America to commit to a future powered by 100% clean energy. A resolution agreed by the City Commission will see Tallahassee’s municipal operations complete the shift by 2035, with the whole community getting there by 2050.

“Florida communities are ready to move away from dirty fuels toward a solar-powered future. We know firsthand that climate change won’t wait — it’s time to take bold action now. Tallahassee’s 100 percent renewable energy commitment signals our entire state’s value for building an energy economy that works for everyone. The Sierra Club looks forward to working with the City Commission, power providers, and the entire community to ensure implementation of our goal lifts up all residents — especially the most vulnerable members of our city,” said Phil Compton, Senior Organizing Representative with the Florida Sierra Club.
