If the Strategic Energy Action Plan (SEAP) is adopted on Monday, our work begins.
RETI, together with the community, will work to make Charlotte a resilient and sustainable city.
Our work at the Renewable Energy Transition Initiative is highlighted in the SEAP, and we look forward to continuing our efforts to eliminate High Energy Burdens and keep the community informed.
SEAP Action areas (highlights):
Job Creation: Develop green workforce pipeline in support of energy transition
Green Building: Efficient infrastructure and planning for a better quality of life and a lower carbon footprint
Clean Transportation: making charlotte more walkable, decrease reliance on automobiles, and supporting last mile modes of transit
Lower Carbon footprint: By 2030, the city strives for 100% zero carbon for municipal buildings and city fleet. By 2050, all (non-municipal) buildings will be near carbon zero.
We encourage you to show your support for the SEAP by attending!
