Decatur Clean Energy Press Release

Decatur, GA – The City of Decatur announces the launch of Clean Energy Decatur, its initiative to develop Decatur’s plan for a clean energy future. Supported by Southface Institute and Greenlink Analytics, the City will kick off a series of outreach and education events on October 28, 6:00 – 7:30pm to inform the development of the Clean Energy Plan. Decatur is committed to protecting its community against the negative impacts of climate change and reducing its contributions to the climate crisis. This Clean Energy Plan will guide those efforts. Your input is essential to ensure that our plan reflects Decatur’s values and priorities. 

All community members and interested parties are invited to participate in a series of roundtables and engagement opportunities in the coming months. A series of Decatur 202s, recorded educational sessions led by subject matter experts on clean energy in Decatur and metro-Atlanta, will be released over this Fall and Winter to provide a better understanding of the Decatur energy landscape and inform the topics discussed in roundtables. 

The City of Decatur will host four virtual events to introduce the Plan development process, set goals, and gather community input.
