Thank TCLP for setting a 100% Renewable Energy Goal

On Tuesday, August 14, Traverse City, Michigan committed to transition fully to renewable energy. The board of Traverse City Light & Power (TCLP), the city’s municipally owned utility, voted in favor of setting a 100 percent renewable energy goal by 2040, and an interim goal of achieving 40 percent renewables by 2025 as part of its strategic plan.

This is the first city in Michigan to commit to a community-wide 100 percent clean energy goal.Thank You CardReaching 100 percent renewables will mean Traverse City will reduce about 200,000 metric tons of carbon dioxide each year. It also will add more clean energy jobs to our region and keep more of the money we spend out of the region in locally grown clean energy, like solar.

As the first city in Michigan to set this goal, it also sends a clear message to other cities and to our state that 100 percent clean energy is possible, necessary, and brings many benefits. Read more about the goal here.

Please sign to thank TCLP for setting this important goal.

Thank you for committing 100 percent renewable energy by 2040, and 40 percent by 2025! Moving rapidly toward renewable energy will bring many benefits to our region. Your leadership is setting an important example for other Michigan cities and our state.
