The City of Edmonds has launched a new website — EdmondsEnergy.org — dedicated to the subject of energy in Edmonds.
“EdmondsEnergy.org is an opportunity for the city to help our community find ways to save money through conservation,” said Mayor Mike Cooper.
EdmondsEnergy.org is the place to find information on:
The City of Edmonds Energy Meter program. Borrow an energy meter to find out how much energy you use, and what you can do to reduce or conserve energy.
Energy planning in Edmonds. What’s being done by city government to reduce energy in its operations, and what’s being explored for the larger community? A key new initiative involves the New Energy Cities Action Plan, developed through a partnership between the City and Climate Solutions, a non-profit organization based in Olympia.
Energy saving ideas. Explore ideas you can follow up on to save energy where you live.
The Community Solar project. A public-private partnership to jump-start solar energy awareness in town.
Electric Vehicles. The City of Edmonds has been “greening” its fleet by changing fuels and replacing older vehicles with hybrids and electric vehicles.
Bring your own bag. The City has banned single-use plastic bag in order to reduce plastics in the waste stream, and also to encourage the re-use of shopping bags to reduce needless energy use.
