Clean Energy

Goal 1: Reduce our cities’ use of and dependence on fossil fuels Initiative 1: Educate, advocate, and organize in OC cities to ensure the adoption and implementation of Climate Action & Adaptation Plans (CAAPs) that achieve zero carbon by 2030 and model Zero Carbon for other OC Cities. Initiative 2: Pass all-electric reach codes for new construction and equitable retrofits (as part of or separate from CAAPs) in 2022.

Goal 2: Advocate and hold electeds accountable for the adoption of renewable energy policies at the city, state, and federal level.

Environmental Justice

Goal 1: Achieve environmental justice and equity for all. Initiative 1: Identify, collaborate, and bring in organizations representing CoC to advocate for policy action to improve the environment, community resilience, and quality of life for CoCs within their homes and at work. Initiative 2: Reduce energy use and harmful and inequitable fossil fuel dependency by passing all-electric reach codes for new construction and equitable retrofits, banning new gas stations in OC cities, and advocating for equitable clean energy implementation in OC. Initiative 3: Educate OCCC members on Environmental Justice issues and experiences, then activate them through CTAs to address injustice in OC.
