Columbus Joins Clean Energy Coalition
Mayor Ginther announced on Tuesday that Columbus is joining Power A Clean Future Ohio (PCFO), a nonpartisan coalition and campaign that works with local communities to develop equitable clean energy solutions. Columbus is the twenty-fifth Ohio city to join the coalition.
“Joining Power A Clean Future Ohio gives us an opportunity to ensure Ohio is doing its part to preserve our environment and reduce our carbon emissions,” Ginther said in a press release.
Joe Flarida, the Executive Director of Power A Clean Future Ohio said that PCFO "looks forward to supporting the City in its efforts to build a clean energy future for Columbus.” Flarida also commended Mayor Ginther on the city’s first-ever Climate Action Plan that was announced earlier this month, which commits to a reduction of carbon emissions by 45% by 2030.
“By joining Power A Clean Future Ohio, Columbus joins a strong network of local communities who are working to reduce emissions and increase their resiliency to the impacts of climate change," said Ohio Environmental Council Executive Director Heather Taylor-Miesle.
Other cities that have joined Power A Clean Future Ohio include Upper Arlington, Worthington, Bexley and Reynoldsburg.
