We are now in the process of setting our 2019 goals and creating strategies for working on these goals:

  • Get Alachua County and other local cities to commit to Ready for 100
  • Get municipal committments to ensure all public buildings are powered by clean renewable energy by 2035
  • Get UF to uphold their sustainability agreements and to contract with GRU when contract with Duke expires
  • Advocate for
    • Better local Electric Vehicle support and policy
    • Greener public transportation
    • Energy efficiency issues as applied to affordable housing
  • Work with UAB to develop GRU/City energy policies
  • Community Projects
    • Community Solar demonstration
    • Solar Coop
    • Solar Home & Business Tour
    • Climate Victory Gardens
  • Micro loan Financing for efficiency updates
