Denver Mayor Michael Hancock on Tuesday unveiled the city’s ambitious 80×50 Climate Action Plan, which aims to achieve an 80 percent reduction in greenhouse gas emissions from 2005 levels by the year 2050.
Included in the program is the goal to meet 100 percent of Denver’s electricity needs for municipal facilities with renewable sources such as wind and solar by 2025, while also meeting the entire city’s electrical demands with renewable sources by 2030.
The 80×50 Climate Action Plan makes Denver the 73rd city in the United States to commit to 100 percent clean energy and joins nine other Colorado communities that have also adopted the same energy goal.
