Achieving 100 percent clean, renewable energy is no longer a far-off vision. Over 50 communities across the US have made the transition to clean electricity for all, each powering their entire community with renewable electricity. Since 2015, the Ready For 100 campaign has worked to support activists advocating for renewable energy in their communities. To date, over 160 cities, more than 10 counties, and eight states across the US have made commitments to leave fossil fuels behind and provide 100 percent clean, renewable energy community-wide. These goals set an ambitious vision and are a crucial first step toward achieving clean energy for everyone. Every community has unique needs and contexts to consider as it determines the best and most equitable path to address the harms perpetrated by the fossil fuel economy and to reach 100 percent clean, renewable power for all.
