Governments around the country and the world are recognizing that moving to 100% clean and renewable energy is not only possible--it is also desirable. The transition allows communities to be more resilient, as energy production is decentralized and more energy is produced on-site. It also improves local economies by creating local jobs as the infrastructure for on-site renewables is developed, and as a result of lower utility fees. In addition, the transition to 100% clean and renewable energy improves the health and quality of life of residents. Finally, it is vitally important for communities around the world to reduce greenhouse gas emissions as quickly as possible to combat the harmful effects of human-caused global climate change on current and future generations. Due to these compelling reasons, we, the undersigned, believe that Athens-Clarke County should commit to 100% Renewable Energy by 2035.
