Reducing our production of greenhouse gases is critical to ensuring that Hartford becomes a place where our children and grandchildren will someday choose to live, work, and raise their families. For too long, cities like Hartford relied solely on energy sources that emit high volumes of greenhouse gases. But that’s changing:  Hartford has already made impressive progress towards clean energyBuilding on a 2014 Energy Action Plan and other reports, this Climate Action Plan will profile our current energy usage and address how we can increase utilization of renewable energy and make our buildings more energy efficient.

The City of Hartford’s Energy Improvement District board explores this vision for cleaner, cheaper, and more reliable energy with its EID Comprehensive Plan that reduces the likelihood of power outages during storms, creates green jobs, reduces fossil fuel dependence, and manages energy costs for all.
