An Announcement from the
50 By 25 Harrisonburg Team
Dear Harrisonburg community,
The 50 By 25 campaign is committed to working toward a healthier, more sustainable community. Thus in light of the COVID-19 health crisis, we are making necessary changes to help protect our team members, volunteers, and supporters.
We will be limiting our face-to-face campaign efforts. We recognize that the current health crisis is the top priority, and we want to support all efforts to take precautions in caring for our neighbors and ourselves.
As we adapt to the constantly changing situation, we will continue to work through digital platforms toward a responsible, clean energy transition. Our website and online petition are up and running, and we are available via email.
We wish good health, safety, and peace to all.
The 50 By 25 Team
Residents, businesses, and organizations have shown their desire for clean energy. Our community needs to build upon this momentum.
If we change our utility’s business model, we can make the transition to clean energy while keeping prices low.
Energy poverty exists in our city and we can help people insulate their homes through targeted programs. We can reinvest our utility’s earnings in a better, smarter grid that helps us all lower our electricity use.

Dear Council Member ____________________,
The Climate Crisis is the defining issue of our time. It affects all of us, and it affects vulnerable populations first and worst.
I ask the Harrisonburg City Council to:
1. Request to direct our electric utility to provide 50% solar and wind energy for our electric grid by 2025 and 100% by 2030.
2. Improve energy efficiency by 25% in municipal and school buildings by 2025 reducing long-term energy costs.
3. Create programs that incentivize weatherization and energy efficiency to reduce energy costs for residential and commercial properties. By making homes and apartments more energy-efficient, we make housing more affordable.
