Cities, counties, and states across the U.S. have set goals to end reliance on fossil fuels and instead to generate electricity from renewable sources. As of November 2021, Ready for 100% campaigns have launched int0 more than 180 cities, ten counties, and eight states nationwide.[1]

Originally planned by the Sierra Club, Ready For 100 (RF100) is a network of local leaders committed to achieving 100% renewable energy by 2050. Cities and counties in six states have already met their targets of generating the energy they use community-wide from clean, non-polluting and renewable sources.[2]

  • Aspen, Colorado
  • Georgetown, Texas
  • Greensburg, Kansas
  • Kodiak Island, Alaska
  • Rock Port, Missouri
  • 42 cities and 5 counties in California!

ecoPreserve is proud to be headquartered in one of the most sustainable cities in the Southeast! Orlando is not only an RF100 city but also has committed to reducing its air pollution and greenhouse gas emissions 90% by 2040.

The Orlando, Florida City Council adopted the RF100 goal by unanimous vote in August 2017. As that commitment was made, Orlando Mayor Buddy Dyer noted that more than 50% of the world’s population lives in cities, so city mayors must lead the fight against rising seas and increasing temperatures.[3]
