Advocating for a Clean Energy Future

Let’s end Jacksonville’s dependence on highly-polluting fossil fuels by committing to a clean renewable energy future. It will help stem climate change, vitalize the economy, and protect natural assets. Opportunities abound, so let’s act.

About the Campaign

Getting the city to commit to operate on 100% renewable energy by 2050 is central to the RenewJax Campaign. It seeks to persuade Jacksonville Electric Authority (JEA) to end its dependence on expensive, highly polluting fossil fuels by converting to clean, renewable energy sources. It also seeks to persuade city leaders to commit to fully operate on renewable energy. Many cities in Florida and nationwide have committed to operate on renewable energy, so it is time for Jacksonville to do so.

Our campaign is supported by these local organizations:

Why We Need the Campaign

Unbeknownst to many in the region, Jacksonville is a major source of greenhouse gas emissions and a contributor to global warming. Though the city suffers from the effects of global warming, it has not acknowledged its contribution to the problem or done anything to limit its impact. Acceleration of global warming coupled with emerging financial incentives to convert to renewable energy make this the time to act.

This is a description of what was problematic about the EIRP and potential ramifications.

It’s Time to Take Action

JEA is a public utility so its leaders should be responsive to the preferences of its citizen owners. Similarly, city leaders were elected by the citizens so they should be responsive to their preferences. It is time to ask these leaders to respond by reducing our city’s contribution to global warming and transition to a clean energy future.
