In 2019, the City of Keene committed to a 100 percent renewable energy transition. All energy that Keene uses for electricity will come from renewable sources by 2030, and all energy used for heating, cooling, and transportation will come from renewables by 2050.
The Energy & Climate Committee, with input from the public, developed a Sustainable Energy Plan, which was adopted by the Keene City Council by unanimous vote on January 21, 2021. You can read the plan here.
Why is Keene committed to a sustainable energy future?
Renewable, clean, and affordable energy sources can promote the health, wellbeing, and resilience of our ecosystem and community.
A sustainable and just transition to renewable energy sources should benefit everyone, including marginalized and vulnerable populations.
Our local economy can flourish by growing and investing in local renewables, energy efficiency technologies, and transportation.
