Rethink Energy: 2020 Editor Pick — Community Energy Plan

This regularly-scheduled sponsored column is written by the Arlington Initiative to Rethink Energy team (AIRE). This county program helps you make smart energy decisions that save you money and leaves a lighter footprint on the environment.

Thank you Arlington Magazine for honoring the Community Energy Plan as the Editor Pick for the Best of Arlington Magazine 2020! You recognize that the effects of climate change continue to accelerate; Arlington is not sitting idly by.

For those that may not be aware, the Arlington County Board adopted sweeping updates to the Community Energy Plan in 2019.  If you haven’t had the chance to take a look at it the final version of the Community Energy Plan, click here to give it a read,   The Community Energy Plan sets ambitious targets for transforming the County’s energy sector.

Some highlights of Arlington’s Community Energy Plan include:

  • Sets goal for a carbon-neutral Arlington by 2050
  • Government operations to achieve 100% renewable electricity by 2025
  • Community to achieve 100% renewable electricity by 2035
  • Considering energy equity during implementation

There is no better cure for worry than action! The County is working hard to put together a list of projects that we will implement to help us achieve the ambitious milestones noted above.

One key milestone is to achieve 100% renewable electricity for Government operations by 2025. That goal is just around the corner and we are already focused on achieving it.

We are proud of the work we’ve done together to save money and energy. Please join us as we move forward. Every action makes a difference.

Together we can create a carbon-neutral Arlington by 2050!
