Strategic Energy Plan - Working Together to Build a Clean Energy Future

On December 5, 2017, the City of Goleta committed to moving the city’s municipal facilities and community-wide electricity supply to 100% renewable power by 2030. The City also resolved to have at least 50 percent of electricity use by municipal facilities come from renewable sources by 2025. To meet these goals and to improve the reliability and resiliency of the local energy grid, the City of Goleta entered into an agreement with the County of Santa Barbara and the City of Carpinteria to work together to develop a regional strategic energy plan.Through this process, Goleta will be developing a city-specific roadmap to reach 100% renewable energy. The City of Santa Barbara is also working on a similar strategic energy plan. Collectively, we're working to address our region's energy needs and address the vulnerability of our regional energy system. 

The Strategic Energy Plan was unanimously adopted by City Council on July 16, 2019. We invite you to learn more about the project and continue to provide further feedback as the City moves into the implementation phase.
