Sponsored by City Commissioner Kelly May, the resolution states three separate goals: first, the city government’s operations would be run on “clean renewable electricity” by 2023, and by 2030 the government would run on 100% clean energy while the city as a whole would aim for 100% clean renewable electricity by that time.
