Changing Nashville's Energy Future

100 signatures

Just in time for Nashville's Earth Day celebration, I filed three pieces of energy policy legislation. Together, they would:


  • push Metro to 100% renewable (while also setting up the idea of a local renewable portfolio standard)
  • push Metro to 100% zero emission fleet
  • push Metro to LEED Platinum (with LEED Zero targeted eventually) for new construction with retrofit targets also included


Please encourage my colleagues on Metro Council to support these bills!


And add your signature right here to demonstrate your support for a better energy future in Nashville.


You can also subscribe to a solar panel from NES's community solar project, offer clean energy assistance to vulnerable Nashvillians, and turn on the Green Power Switch from TVA. These steps show your support for clean energy to NES and TVA.

    Urgent large-scale action to reduce energy use and greenhouse gas emissions is necessary to minimize the adverse impacts of global warming, which would threaten life on Earth as we know it. These policies are an important first step toward getting Nashville’s goals and policies in line with what is necessary to maintain a livable, safe planet.
