America’s transportation system produces more greenhouse gas emissions than any other sector of our economy. Three strategies – phasing out fossil fuel vehicles, electrifying and improving our transit system, and getting more people moving by foot, bike and transit – can put the U.S. on a path to a zero-carbon transportation system.
A solar energy goal provides an opportunity to institutionalize a shared vision for a solar-powered future. The objective should be a specific, measurable amount of solar energy that is either produced or used within or by the city. While there are many different types of solar commitments, they all play an important role in guiding a community’s transition towards clean energy.
