SLO is going Carbon Neutral by 2035
It’s the most ambitious municipal goal in the U.S. and we’re helping to make it happen.
This is a big deal.
We have a once in a lifetime opportunity to help the City of San Luis Obispo achieve carbon neutrality.
This means reducing greenhouse gas emissions that cause climate change by increasing the use of renewable energy from clean sources like the sun and wind. Then we must phase out the use of fossil fuels like gasoline in cars and natural gas in buildings. Finally, we plan to strive for zero waste and store as much carbon as we can in our trees and soil.
Step 1: Community Choice Energy
Greener electricity at a lower cost is coming in 2020.
In December 2018, San Luis Obispo and Morro Bay became the first (of many!) cities in San Luis Obispo County to join Monterey Bay Community Power (MBCP), a regional public agency providing competitively priced carbon-free electricity to residents and businesses on the Central Coast via PG&E transmission lines.
Step 2: SLO Climate Solution Series
The first two events in our series on local solutions to climate change were huge successes. Part 3 should be just as mind blowing.
On August 22nd, learn about ways we can reduce carbon emissions from homes and businesses, new and old and find out what actions you can take to protect this beautiful place for yourself, your children, your grandchildren, and the people of the future.
