In August of 2019, City Council unanimously agreed to renewable energy and carbon emission reduction goals.
This significant step for the City stems in part from the Energy Future Collaboration program with Xcel Energy. In 2018, the program established a voluntary partnership between the City and Xcel, which focuses on innovation, clean energy, economic development, customer programs, and technology.
At the August meeting, the City Council adopted a resolution setting out the following goals:
- Meet all of Louisville’s municipal electric needs with 100% carbon-free sources by 2025.
- Reduce core municipal greenhouse gas emissions annually below the 2016 baseline through 2025.
Community Proposed Goals
- Generate 75% of Louisville’s residential and commercial/industrial electric needs from carbon-free sources by 2030.
- Reduce core community greenhouse emissions annually below the 2016 baseline through 2030.
