The Saint Petersburg City Council voted unanimously in November to commit the city to use 100% clean energy. To achieve this goal, the Council allocated $250K of BP Oil Spill settlement funds to an “Integrated Sustainability Action Plan”. The plan will chart a roadmap to 100% clean, renewable energy in Saint Petersburg.
To celebrate, the Suncoast Sierra Club and Ready for 100 hosted a celebration in December atop the roof of the Station House in downtown St. Petersburg. A big thanks to all the St. Pete Solar Co-op members who attended the event. The St. Pete co-op and FL SUN were recognized for their leadership in bringing solar energy systems to St. Petersburg and encouraging so many homeowners to sign up for the St. Pete Solar co-op.
