Denton is the second city in Texas to announce plans to move to 100% clean energy.

It follows Georgetown in making the pledge, after the city council voted this week to ‘meet the energy needs of its electric customers through 100% renewable energy’ ‘as early as either 2020 or 2024’.

“The Sierra Club applauds Denton City Council for its leadership and pragmatism,” said Cyrus Reed, the Conservation Director of the Sierra Club’s Lone Star Chapter.

Tuesday’s vote in Denton means there are now 58 cities across America committed to a 100% clean energy future, including the likes of Chicago, San Francisco and San Diego.
