Stevens Point Clean Energy Campaign
The Stevens Point Clean Energy Campaign just launched in 2023.
We're working with local elected officials and residents to push the city to commit to 100 percent clean energy by 2040.
Additionally, we're working to create a Sustainability Committee and hire a Sustainability Coordinator. Together we will ensure Stevens Point has a healthy, cleaner future.
If you live in Stevens Point, sign this petition to encourage the common council to formally adopt the recommendations.
In 2017, the city's Eco Municipality Advisory Commission made a ten-year report called, "A Path to a Sustainable Point." The commission recommended the city create a sustainability committee and hire a sustainability coordinator, which are critical to ensuring our city is resilient to climate change.
UW-Stevens Point has 100 percent renewable electricity use and is well on its way to its 2030 climate goals. Additionally, over a dozen local governments have committed to 100 percent clean energy because they understand the imperative of meeting the climate crisis head-on.
On the larger scale, investor-owned utilities such as Wisconsin Public Service, are making their own commitments to reaching 100 percent clean energy by the year 2050.
By making this clean energy commitment, Stevens Point has the opportunity to improve the health of its residents, boost the local economy, and create new green jobs.
