The ongoing quest to reach 100% renewable energy is slowly accumulating support. This past week, the first cities in Wisconsin and Louisiana have committed to transitioning to 100% renewables, following city council votes.
Madison, Wisconsin and Abita Springs, Louisiana are not alone in this transition by any means. Across America, there are now 25 cities who have committed to the same goal. From San Diego, California to Salt Lake City, Utah to Georgetown, Texas, cities across the country are putting their faith behind renewable energy.
Madison is the biggest city in the region to commit to such a plan, which also includes targets of net-zero carbon emissions. The city council vote unanimously supported the resolution, which allocates $250,000 to this goal. However, the quarter of a million dollars will be spent simply on developing the roadmap to reach these goals. The plan should be completed by January 18th, 2018 and will include target dates, interim milestones, budget estimates and expected financial impacts.
