ACC lawmakers to talk about clean energy plan
The goals for the plan are ambitious – 100 percent of the energy needs for county property provided by clean electricity by 2035, and 100 percent of electricity countywide by 2050.
To get there, planners are offering a host of ideas, including a clean energy loan fund, and electrification of the city’s vehicles – a project funded in part by TSPLOST 2023 money.
At Tuesday’s work session, planners will review their efforts so far and ask commissioners to formally approve the plan in early August. As the clock ticks down towards that potential early August vote, the county will have a virtual public meeting on Friday with presentations at 12:30 pm and 1:30 pm, and an in-person public meeting on June 23 at the library.
