First Major US Climate Action Plan Released


The Sonoma County (California) Climate Action Plan is out - click on coolplan.org to view and download documents - implementing the highest carbon reduction target yet set by any local jurisdiction in the United States - a 25% Reduction from 1990 levels by 2015.

Local Power wrote the whole energy element, which achieves a 66% Renewable Portfolio Standard by 2015 without requiring any increased energy costs. Community Choice (CCA) provides the logistical backbone of an integrated power/thermal/transportation fuel project - billed as a "public works" project on the web site, which was posted just a few days ago.

The Sonoma Climate Action Plan is by far the most visionary, far-reaching project Local Power has been lucky to be allowed to help write. Moreoer, its announcement adds Sonoma County to the list of jurisdictions now actively investigating CCA alongside San Francisco, Marin, San Joachin, and others.
