www.cityofpaloalto.org/UTLcarbonfree

I’m working for your kids, my kids and our carbon-free future. It’s very satisfying to help the City of Palo Alto be more energy efficient and lower carbon emissions. But what really drives me is my children. I want them to grow up in a cleaner world than the one I grew up in. So, I am very excited about our City’s recent decision to only purchase completely carbon-neutral electric supplies. We are among the first cities in the nation to take this step towards a healthier, cleaner planet. To watch a fun video and get more details on our 100% carbon-neutral electric plan, visit CityofPaloAlto.org/UTLcarbonfree
