Following Google’s footsteps, Des Moines pledges 24/7 clean electricity by 2035

The Des Moines City Council on Monday approved a resolution outlining a series of carbon emission goals, including a 24/7 clean energy by 2035 pledge modeled after Google’s round-the-clock energy plan.

Des Moines is already well on its way to 100% clean energy, according to the council resolution; 83% of the city’s energy came from clean sources in 2020.

While Des Moines may benefit from factors that enable it to pursue ambitious energy targets, environmental advocates hope the resolution will spur greater aspirations in similarly-positioned communities.
