100 U.S. Cities And Towns Now Committed To 100% Clean Energy

According to the Sierra Club, about 48.7 million people, or 15.1% of the U.S. population, now live in places that are committed to transition to 100% renewable energy. These cities, counties and states will collectively reduce carbon pollution by 120 million metric tons as they move away from fossil fuels and repower themselves entirely with renewable energy – the equivalent of taking 26 million cars off the road or retiring 30 average coal-fired power plants, the Sierra Club estimates.
