GREEN BAY, Wis. – Last night, the Green Bay Common Council voted 9 to 2 in favor of adopting the Clean Energy Green Bay Plan, moving the city towards a clean energy future. The plan outlines how municipal operations and the community at-large can reach 100 percent clean energy and carbon neutrality by 2050.

Deputy Director Seth Hoffmeister had this to say about the passing of the plan:

“For over five years, Wisconsin Conservation Voters has been organizing local residents and working alongside dedicated community members, businesses, and organizations to support the City of Green Bay’s sustainability goals.

We applaud Mayor Eric Genrich and the Green Bay Common Council for their leadership and for pushing our city towards a sustainable future. The Clean Energy Green Bay plan will save residents money, create good-paying clean jobs, and help us combat the climate crisis.

The work is just beginning and we look forward to building our clean energy infrastructure and improving our city.”
