City of Flagstaff to go carbon-free by 2025 through APS green energy program
The City Flagstaff plans to partner with Arizona’s biggest electric utility to make all city operations carbon-free by 2025.
Flagstaff is the first participant in Arizona Public Service Company’s Green Power Partners program.
Subscribers enroll with APS and receive a contracted amount of green power for a specified price in addition to a normal electricity rate.
City officials say participation in the program will eventually reduce municipal emissions by nearly half and decarbonize its power supply.
As a response to accelerating climate change the Flagstaff City Council in 2021 set out to achieve community-wide carbon neutrality within the decade and to improve resilience.
