Signing up for ClimateAction last summer at Farmers Market. | Submitted

Oak Park Area ClimateAction to present “100% Renewable Energy” resolution to the Oak Park Village Board on Jan. 28.

In the wake of its completed six-month tabling campaign at Oak Park Farmers Market, Oak Park Area ClimateAction will present a formal resolution to the Oak Park Village Board calling for endorsement of a pledge for “100% Renewable Energy.”

At the scheduled village board meeting on Jan. 28, Mayor Anan Abu-Taleb will be presented with some 850 “100%” postcard petitions collected from Oak Park citizens at the Sierra Club/Oak Park Area ClimateAction table, from May through October, 2018.

The resolution calls for the village to commit to a transition to 100% clean energy in the form of solar/wind and energy efficiency measures by 2035. 

More than 100 U.S. communities have signed on to the Sierra Club’s national “Ready for 100% Clean Renewable Energy by 2035” campaign. On Dec. 11, the city of Evanston became the first Illinois community to make the commitment.

Oak Park Area ClimateAction supports cleaner air and water, good-paying clean energy jobs, and a brighter future for Oak Park-area communities through a 100% clean energy economy.
