We Are Ready for 100% Clean Energy

Mayor Steve Skadron of Aspen, Colorado

 

"The city set a goal to reach 100% renewable by 2015. It’s through a  lot of hard work, a commitment to a long term goal, and having a vision that’s allowed us to get here."

Natalia Martínez Torres, Pontifical Catholic University of Puerto Rico

 

"I want clean energy because there is just one planet earth, and by making a single difference in the way we waste energy and the waste of fossil fuels, we can make a bigger change for a healthy and brighter future."

Pontifical Catholic University of Puerto Rico

Watch Natalia Martínez Torres, a student at Pontificia Universidad Católica of Puerto Rico, explain why she’s trying to get her school to commit to 100% clean energy.
Kian Martin, Lincoln High School (class of 2016)

​"I'm taking action because of the identities I hold as a young, queer, Iranian-American person. I believe that it is my responsibility, both to myself and to the people I love, to take action for just, equitable climate solutions."

Kian Martin

Lincoln High School (class of 2016)

Kian, a high school student in San Jose, California, is a leader on campus working with Seize the Grid to get his school to install solar panels and mentoring other high school students on how to organize for clean energy solutions.
Blythe Cassidy, Loyola University of Maryland

"My faith pushes me to combat climate change. As Pope Francis recognizes, each of us can have an impact in our own way. That's why I'm organizing with Seize the Grid and working with my campus, Loyola University of Maryland, to power our campus with 100% clean energy."

Blythe Cassidy

Loyola University of Maryland

Inspired by the Pope, Loyola University announced they will sign onto the President's Climate Commitment. Students like Blythe have been pushing for almost two years to have the school adopt a 100% clean energy goal.
Sue Parkison

Sue Parkison, a widowed mother of four, was struggling since her husband passed away. She could barely afford to heat her home in the cold Connecticut winters or the electricity from her utility. Sue heard about Domino, an energy savings concierge service, and with Domino’s guidance, had her ductwork upgraded and major leaks fixed in her windows and doors. She installed a solar array on her roof with no upfront costs. Now her power bills have dropped dramatically and she’s establishing a legacy of clean energy for her children.

We know it's possible for the United States to power itself with a new model of 100 percent clean energy -- but it won't happen fast enough unless we set and meet some ambitious goals.
The international climate agreement coming out of Paris this weekend gave us a lot to celebrate -- but now the good news is hitting even closer to home. On the heels of the Paris negotiations, San Diego announced today that it is going all-in on clean energy, becoming the largest U.S. city to commit to 100 percent clean energy. Not 80 percent. Not 90 percent. But 100 percent clean energy. 
Something incredible is happening right now across the globe. Achieving 100 percent clean energy is becoming "the new normal" in the fight to solve climate change. What's driving this trend is a flowering of ambition.
