Upcoming Strategic Energy Plan Workshops

Want to learn more about local, resilient renewable energy development potential? The City of Goleta is hosting several opportunities in the month of April for the community to participate in the strategic energy planning process.

The energy planning process and local workshops will help Goleta to develop more renewable energy, reduce its carbon emissions, and explore the best ways to provide clean, reliable, and resilient energy to the community. We need your valuable input to help identify the best strategies to ensure equitable community access to clean energy and its benefits. You can learn more about the city’s strategic energy plan progress on the website here.
