Burbank is First to Commit to 33% Renewables
Twenty years ago, most of Burbank’s energy came from coal. In June 2007, the Burbank City Council approved BWP's recommendation to secure 33% of Burbank's energy needs from renewable energy by 2020, making Burbank the first city in the nation to step up to this ambitious goal.
Burbank Achieves 33% Renewable Goal Five Years Ahead of Schedule
Burbank reached the 2007 goal of providing 33% renewable energy to the community. This goal was achieved in 2015, five whole years ahead of schedule! Burbank’s dependence on coal will continue to drop as our renewable energy portfolio grows.
Today, Burbank is Increasing Renewables to Reduce Greenhouse Gases (GHG)
In collaboration with our City Council, BWP is pursuing an aspirational goal of becoming 100% GHG-free by 2040. Renewable energy will play an important part in our clean energy future. The transition to GHG-free energy will take time, effort, and a lot of planning for BWP to continue providing services that are reliable, affordable, and sustainable.
