The faith community in Boise organized in the summer of 2017 to ask Mayor Bieter to endorse a vision for 100 perecent clean energy. Climate change demands bold and immediate action. Many cities across the country are rapidly transitioning to renewables by committing to derive all of their electricity from clean resources. 100% clean, renewable power is the new standard for a livable future. Boise can lead and ensure the continuation of our celebrated livability by joining these cities and committing to 100% clean, renewable, and affordable electricity by 2035.
You can build on your admirable track record of innovation and leadership by convening stakeholders to find the best path towards a 100% clean energy future. By setting this clear, ambitious, and achievable target of 100% clean, renewable energy you can provide citizens, businesses, and investors the certainty they need to work for a carbon-free future. Acting now will create jobs, improve our city air quality, and help lead the world into the vibrant low-carbon future. We ask that the City of Boise plan for a 100% clean, renewable energy citywide.
