Now more than ever before, mayors and local leaders must be at the forefront of moving America towards a more just and equitable country for all people. 

As the Trump Administration guts vital air, water and human rights protections, it’s up to mayors and local officials to lead our nation towards a healthier, stronger future by committing to 100% clean, renewable energy for all.

More than 140 mayors, have joined #Mayors4CleanEnergy -- showing their support for 100% clean and renewable energy in their cities, towns, and communities, and across the country. And over 40 U.S. cities, and counting -- from Atlanta to Abita Springs, Louisiana and San Diego to Salt Lake City -- have all committed to 100% clean, renewable energy. These communities are showing that 100% clean and renewable energy is important for all cities -- big and small, red and blue, locally and globally. Why? 

Because cleaner, healthier, more affordable energy is here! Wind power has more than doubled in the past four years, and over the past six years has plummeted in price. Solar energy has increased by a factor of five, making solar one of the fastest-growing industries in America, and the fastest-growing industry in the world. Today, supporting clean energy is not just about protecting our air and water, it’s also about supporting our local economies and creating jobs.

#ReadyFor100 is a movement of people working to inspire our leaders to embrace a vision of healthier communities powered by 100% clean energy. We are asking mayors, CEOs, pastors, principals, civic and community leaders, parents and students to commit to solutions that help us achieve 100% clean, renewable energy across the United States by the year 2050, or sooner.

Already, #ReadyFor100 campaigns are springing up in cities and states all around the country led by local folks who want good jobs, clean air and a better quality of life in their communities.

We're #ReadyFor100 percent clean energy! Are you?!
Across the nation, people in both red states and blue states are realizing that modernizing our cities with 100% clean and renewable energy will help create jobs and boost local economies. Cities like Aspen, CO, Greensburg, KS, and Burlington, VT, have already achieved 100% clean energy. And internationally, Vancouver, Paris, and Sydney are also going all-in on clean energy. A recent economic study estimated that a transition to clean energy will add 1 million jobs in the U.S. by 2030 and increase household disposable income by $350-$400 in 2030 and by as much as $650 in 2050 (source: http://nextgenamerica.org/blog/our-clean-energy-economy/). The renewable energy sector is booming. Wind and solar prices have rapidly declined in the past five years, and the solar industry is one of the fastest growing sectors of the US economy. Poll after poll shows that a majority of Americans support renewable energy. In a recent national survey of U.S. adults paid for by the Sierra Club, a whopping 83 percent of respondents said they support a goal of 100% clean energy. With cities like Paris and San Diego leading the way, it’s time for our city to step up to the plate. We too deserve clean air, good jobs, and strong leadership. I'm ready for our city and community to go 100% clean energy! Will you lead us to 100% clean and renewable energy?!
