We are in a climate emergency.
We are all affected, but vulnerable populations are hurt first and worst.
We need to reduce energy poverty in Harrisonburg, without raising electric bills.
We all need clean energy, clean air, and clean water.
We must act now.
If you agree, make your voice heard:
I ask the Harrisonburg City Council to:
Sign the Petition
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.
