The clean energy initiative marks the city’s commitment to reduce carbon emissions through the installation of solar panels.

City leaders said they hope to reduce carbon emissions to net zero by 2050.

Part of the project is to set up solar-powered resilience hubs for disasters.

“I have a partnership with PosiGen, this is my personal partnership, where I have solar panels on my home and it’s something I’ve seen benefit me,” said Cantrell.

Going solar is expected to take hundreds off residents’ utility bill.
