Energy Legislation

Energy Efficiency Resolution

In 2010 the Flagstaff City Council passed resolution 2010-16 (PDF) promoting energy efficiency and renewable energy at City facilities. The resolution sets requirements based on the City's electricity consumption. The City is required to meet:

  • 15% of the City's energy consumption by 2012 through renewable energy generation and/or purchasing
  • 20% by 2015
  • 35% by 2020
  • 50% by 2050

Sustainable Building Resolution

In March of 2014 the Flagstaff City Council adopted a Resolution requiring all City-owned new construction and major renovation to achieve certification in one of the three sustainable building certification programs or high performance building code. This will help us protect natural resources, prevent waste, and reduce consumption in future construction. Read the resolution (PDF).
