LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) Leaders in Lawrence want to move the city and its residents toward getting 100% of their energy from renewable resources.
The Lawrence Journal World reports that the City Commission voted unanimously Tuesday night to direct city staff to draft an ordinance to achieve 100% renewable energy use and develop a plan for achieving that goal.
A city advisory board is recommending that Lawrence rely solely on renewable resources for its city government operations by 2025 and for the entire community to use renewable resources for all energy needs by 2050. About 10% of Lawrence residents voluntarily use renewable energy sources.
