Ann Arbor has joined a growing list of cities across the nation committed to using all-renewable energy for municipal operations within the next two decades. City Council unanimously approved the resolution in December, directing the city to power 100% of municipal government operations with wind, solar or other clean energy alternatives by 2035 or sooner. “I’m delighted that this is moving forward,” said Mayor Chris Taylor. “Ann Arbor has a very ambitious Climate Action Plan. And while the municipal load is small, the work that we’re doing here, I think, will have a tangible effect.” The city’s municipal operations currently account for roughly 1.3 percent of Ann Arbor’s total community-wide greenhouse gas emissions.
