  • Target: 100% renewable electricity supply by 2032
  • Status: In progress
  • RES: Solar energy
  • Implementation: Moab is a town surrounded by National Parks in the US western state of Utah. In February 2017, the City Council voted on a resolution to commit to reaching a 100% renewable electricity supply in the community by 2032. The decision was made based on community's concern for the environment and for the local economy. To demonstrate its leadership, the City voted on the resolution as it was completing an expanded 63 kW solar array on the City Hall building. The resolution also commits the city's municipal operations to be powered by 100% renewable sources in 2027, five years earlier than the entire community, with an interim goal of achieving 50% renewable power by 2024. The resolution also contains greenhouse gas reduction targets of 80% below 2018 levels by 2040, and 50% below 2018 levels by 2032. To help the city stay on track and communicate progress, the resolution calls for updating the greenhouse gas inventories every three years and publishing progress on the 100% renewable power goals every other year.
