Connecticut faces critical decisions regarding our energy future, including whether to fund a natural gas pipeline expansion and whether to extend the licenses of nuclear power plants. The PACE 100PercentCT Project presents an alternative to fossil fuel and nuclear energy by facilitating the transition to a clean energy economy. The project develops local, viable plans that move individual towns – and the State of Connecticut – to 100% renewable energy. This project provides clean, carbon free energy and makes our towns both sustainable and resilient.
Stanford University professor Mark Z. Jacobson has done ground-breaking research, demonstrating that it is possible to power our society entirely from wind, water and the sun. Each of us can work in our own towns to move closer to this reality.
This online guidebook is intended to provide resources for your community at every step of your clean energy transition, including the first steps of getting organized. It reflects the collective experience of communities across the state, and provides suggestions and helpful resources for building your team, creating an energy plan, engaging the community and carrying out a wide range of energy efficiency and clean energy initiatives. Using the image below, simply click on the topic you are interested in. If you are just getting organized, we suggest you start with the box labeled “Initial Project Organization.” The guidebook is flexible and a community can start where they like. However, this guide is comprehensive and in order to reach the 100% goal a community will have to engage on all the topics below. If you don’t find what you are looking for, please let us know. Enjoy the journey!
