Cities Across USA Continue To Commit To 100% Renewable Electricity

May 6th, 2017 | by Kyle Field

Hello Solar put together an interactive map documenting all of the cities in the US that have committed to moving to 100% renewable energy*. The map includes the timing on which the cities have committed to complete the transition and the population of each for context. (Note: since the site and many cities write "100% renewable energy," we are using that language, but many of these commitments are actually just about 100% renewable energy for electricity or electricity + heating.)
