In October 2017, the City of St. Louis Board of Aldermen unanimously passed Resolution 124, which called upon the City to develop a plan to transition to 100 percent clean energy in the form of wind, solar and energy efficiency measures by 2035.
Since the passing of the resolution, Board of Aldermen President Lewis Reed has formed a nine member Advisory Board to spearhead the project. The volunteer group consists of organizations that represent labor, faith, social justice, environmental justice, public health and the environment, clean energy sector, universities and academic institutions and more.

Throughout the plan development process, the Advisory Board is seeking to educate the public about the importance of clean energy and acquire input from City residents about the future plan.


“It’s essential that the community has a role in the planning process of moving our City to 100% clean
energy,” said Reed. “We have a President who believes wind turbines cause cancer. It’s obvious we need to do a better job of educating the public and raising awareness about this serious issue in our community and world.”


The full plan will be submitted to the Board of Aldermen in August 2019.
