|Atlanta aims to be powered by 100|
per cent renewable energy by 2035.
Whenever national environmental policy is getting you down, it's always good to look to the cities. Cities are where big positive changes often happen before they become nation-wide movements.
Yesterday, the city of Atlanta announced that it would be powered by 100 percent renewable energy by 2035. This makes it the first large southern city to commit to that goal and one of the largest cities in the nation to do so.
The resolution, introduced by Councilman Kwanza Hall, was unanimously approved by the city council. The council will have a plan in place for the transition by January 2018 and it will include the goal of reaching 100 percent renewable energy across all city operations by 2025.
