Decatur kicking off clean energy plan initiative on Oct. 28

Decatur City Hall.

Decatur, GA — The city of Decatur is in the process of developing a clean energy plan that will guide the city’s efforts in protecting the community against the negative effects of climate change and reducing its contributions to the climate crisis. The city has announced Clean Energy Decatur, the initiative that will develop the plan, according to a press release.

Southface Institute and Greenlink Analytics will kick off a series of outreach and education events on Thursday, Oct. 28 from 6-7:30 p.m. via Zoom. Community members and interested parties are encouraged to participate in the roundtables and engagement opportunities in the coming months.

The city and consultants will host a series of Decatur 202’s, recorded educational sessions led by subject-matter experts on clean energy in the city and metro Atlanta. The series will be released throughout the fall and winter to provide a better understanding of the city’s energy landscape and inform the topics of the roundtable discussions.

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

All the events will be conducted via Zoom. The events are scheduled as follows:
