Mayor Jackie Biskupski of Salt Lake City, Utah, Co-Chair of Mayors for 100 Percent Clean Energy, issued the following:

“Cities are a remarkable force in driving the momentum toward 100 percent renewable energy across the nation. At the annual meeting of the U.S. Conference of Mayors in June 2017, the Mayors for 100 Percent Clean Energy co-chairs and I introduced a resolution establishing cities’ support for 100 percent clean energy that passed overwhelmingly. At the time, 36 cities had officially adopted this goal. Today, that number has grown to 100. Since last year, we’ve seen hurricanes, wildfires, and flooding ravage our communities–the need for local action to support our cities has never been greater. On behalf of mayors across the country, I am proud that we are leading our communities to a renewable future in the face of federal inaction, and we’re doing so with the support of our local businesses, community members, and national partners like the Ready for 100 campaign.”

Joey Bergstein, CEO of Seventh Generation, issued the following:

“A commitment to 100 percent renewable energy is a commitment to clean, healthy, thriving communities. Creating a world that future generations can enjoy is our responsibility–and powering our cities with wind and solar will ensure that families enjoy clean air and water for the long haul. This 100 city milestone is a testament to the power of local municipalities and grassroots organizing like the Ready for 100 campaign to shape the future. We all stand to gain when our communities run on 100 percent renewable energy.”
