What is Keene's Sustainable Energy Resolution?
In January 2019, the Keene City Council adopted Resolution R-2018-36 (Sustainable Energy Resolution) setting the following goals:
100 percent of electricity consumed in the City will come from renewable energy sources by the year 2030
100 percent of thermal energy and energy used for transportation will come from renewable energy sources by the year 2050
These aspirational goals apply to the entire community, not just municipal operations. The City Council made a commitment to develop a plan to achieve these goals by December of 2020.
