A grassroots group of Keene residents, businesses, and leaders from education, faith, nonprofit and other sectors have voiced their support for making energy efficiency and renewable energy options accessible for residents and businesses.
On Thursday, Jan. 17, the City Council of Keene, New Hampshire voted 14-1 to establish a goal of transitioning the city to 100 percent clean and renewable energy. Keene joins the communities of Concord, Cornish, Hanover, and Plainfield to become the fifth city in the state to establish the goal.
The resolution adopts a goal of using 100 percent renewable energy for electricity by 2030 and for all sectors including heat and transportation by 2050. Keene is the 104th city in the United States to commit to transition to 100 percent clean, renewable energy.
Now, we start the journey…join us.
