Tell the city what you think of its Clean Energy Vision

The plan supports Mayor Jim Kenney's goal of reducing carbon emissions by 80 percent in the next 30 years by rethinking where the city gets its energy.

The City of Philadelphia has long held that, no matter what the president says, climate change is real.

As part of a continuing effort to bolster its sustainable practices, the city’s Office of Sustainability last week released a draft of its clean energy plan and wants the public’s feedback on it.

Titled “Powering Our Future: A Clean Energy Vision for Philadelphia,” the document supports Mayor Jim Kenney’s goal of reducing the city’s carbon emissions by 80 percent of its 2006 levels by 2050 and includes a plan to buy clean power (wind, solar) from a contracted distributor instead of one that gets its energy from coal or other non-green sources.

The Office of Sustainability has grouped its clean energy work into five categories:

  • Clean electricity supply
  • Citywide solar
  • Energy-efficient homes and businesses
  • Low-carbon thermal energy
  • Low-carbon economy
See the plan

What do you think about the plan? Does clean energy affect your work at all? Do you think the plan isn’t doing enough? Let the city know by Jan. 31.
