Great to see this commitment by 19 cities to make all new buildings net zero by 2030. In Alexandria, we set that same goal back in 2009. We're updating our green building policy this year; time to recommit.

Will you also support the EPC and Sierra Club request to add $81k to the budget TODAY to offset 100% of the GHGs from the City of Alexandria’s electricity consumption? That’s the fastest, most direct way the City can make good on your commitment.
