Community Action for a Sustainable Alameda

Should Alameda’s schools go solar? School board members will discuss the merits tonight of moving forward with a plan to install solar panels atop Alameda’s public schools.

Local environmentalists fear changes Alameda Municipal Power – which bills itself as “the greenest little utility in America” – plans to make to its solar program could bring an end to new solar installations on the Island.

Five years ago, city leaders adopted a plan aimed at reducing Alameda’s carbon footprint. And community members formed a group, Community Action for a Sustainable Alameda, to help promote the plan’s emission reduction goals and gain the public’s help in reaching them. This Wednesday, April 24, the city and CASA are teaming up once more to celebrate their achievements at a Climate Protection Forum, where they will highlight the results of a Greenhouse Gas Emissions report, and spotlight local climate heroes.
