Coalition to attend two important meetings July 18 and Aug. 23
Over 20 local environmental organizations have joined together to help the City of Pasadena shape an energy future free of fossil fuels and the pollution they cause. Under the banner of Pasadena 100, these organizations are advocating for 100 percent renewable energy by 2035, a goal that is now within easy reach because of technological breakthroughs in wind, solar, and other renewable energy sources.
As a coalition, they are preparing to attend two important city-sponsored meetings on the Power Integrated Renewal Plan (IRP); which is required by the State of California and will shape Pasadena’s energy future for the next 20 years. The first meeting will be at 6 p.m. on July 18 at Pasadena’s Main library on Walnut, while the second opportunity to comment will be at the same time on Thursday, Aug. 23 at the Hastings Ranch Library.
For the past two years, Pasadena 100 has been meeting with local city officials to share climate change research as well as examples of successful efforts by other communities to limit greenhouse gas emissions. Of particular concern to Pasadena 100 are the social costs of inaction, especially those impacting human health and the environment.
