American cities continue to fall like dominos in committing to a future powered by 100% renewable power.

The city of Clarkston in Georgia is the latest to join the 100% club, pledging to complete the journey by 2050, with a notable stop off in 2035, when its fleet of vehicles will be zero-emission, the local council confirmed this week. Clarkston is the second city in the state to make the announcement following Atlanta in 2017.

 

“Clean energy is the future. One of the benefits of having a majority millennial city council is that we have a keen eye towards what our community will be like decades from now. Our hope is to chart a clear path to a future Clarkston with cleaner air, water, and more economic opportunities. We look forward to working with the City of Atlanta and communities across the metro area to make a clean energy transition, which will help us tackle climate change and create a more resilient future even quicker,” said Councilwoman Andrea Cervone.
