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.
Late last year, the Arlington County Board adopted sweeping updates to the Community Energy Plan, setting ambitious targets for transforming the county’s energy sector.
Some highlights of Arlington’s Community Energy Plan (CEP) include:
- Set goal of a carbon neutral Arlington by 2050
- Government operations to achieve 100% renewable electricity by 2025
- Community to achieve 100% renewable electricity by 2035
- Consider energy equity during implementation
County staff are working hard to finalize the Implementation Plan to reach CEP goals. We need your input!
County staff seek your input on the draft Community Energy Plan Implementation Framework. This holiday break, take a few minutes to help shape Arlington’s energy future.
Visit the Implementation Framework engage page to provide your feedback.
There, you’ll find background videos, additional information and a button at the bottom to provide input directly on the draft Implementation Framework.
Thank you for all of the community effort to update the Community Energy Plan and create a climate of change in Arlington.
We look forward to finalizing the Implementation Framework to help reach Arlington’s ambitious goals in the coming years.
