The Draft Resolution for Sustainable Energy in Keene is moving forward to a full City Council vote on Jan. 17.
[Keene Sentinel – Jan. 12, 2019] A resolution aimed at moving Keene toward 100-percent usage of renewable energy is one step closer to adoption…this week. The City Council’s municipal services, facilities and infrastructure committee voted, 4-1, Wednesday night to recommend the full council adopt the resolution…
Submitted by Keene’s energy and climate committee, the resolution outlines two goals for the city: that all electricity come from renewable sources by 2030, and that all thermal and transportation energy follow suit by 2050. The document stipulates that the goal “will apply to the entire Keene community, not just municipal government operations.”
A resolution, unlike an ordinance, states the council’s opinion or intent on a particular matter. It is not a piece of legislation. The proposed resolution also includes a December 2020 deadline for the city to develop a strategic plan to reach those goals.
