Tallahassee commissioners set 100 percent renewable energy goal by 2050

by Gina Jordan, WJCT

The Tallahassee city commission wants the city to be on 100 percent renewable energy by 2050. The goals are outlined in a resolution adopted by commissioners during their Wednesday meeting.

The plan sets milestones. For example, city-owned facilities would be on 100 percent renewable energy sources by 2035 and city-owned light duty vehicles and Star Metro main line buses would be completely electric by 2035.

Once the 2050 goal is met, the city should produce as much clean, renewable energy as the community consumes. The city says any unavoidable use of non-renewable energy will be balanced by the export of renewable energy to other communities.
