The City of Milwaukee is working to reduce its use of fossil fuels by making investments in energy efficiency and renewable energy. Reinvesting limited energy budgets into energy efficiency and renewable energy creates local jobs, improves the environment, and keeps are energy dollars local.  It also supports our action to address threats from climate change.

Infographic: Milwaukee residents, businesses and local government spend $1.4 billion on fossil fuels every year. Milwaukee spends $1.2B on oil, $116M on natural gas, and $153M on coal. Investing a portion of this $1.4B in Milwaukee's clean energy future could fund... solar power on Milwaukee homes, energy efficiency upgrades for households, electric vehicles and clean transportation.
