About the Task Force

In early 2020, the Stillwater City Council passed a resolution expressing a commitment to transition to 100 percent clean, renewable energy and forming a citizen “Renewable Energy Task Force."

The Renewable Energy Task Force is an ad hoc advisory committee consisting of Stillwater citizens, and representatives of Stillwater educational, business, and industrial entities.

Their goal is to develop a plan establishing clean energy goals and benchmarks through a transparent and inclusive stakeholder process that includes community members from organizations and groups most impacted by our current energy systems by March 2021.

The Committee may additionally provide interim reports to the City Council as it deems necessary.

    Registration is required to view each presentation. To register a valid email must be provided. After the registration is complete, a confirmation email will be sent for every session registered for.
