Yes. The majority of expenditures are already budget lines in the future. What Council needs to do is to ensure new funding is provided to maximize the impact, as soon as possible.
Yes. I commit to fully funding and implementing the Energy Evolution plan. Unfortunately, this plan was designed to mobilize large amounts of private finance which have not yet appeared, but it is a comprehensive plan and we must step up to invest in the public side of it.
If the plan was fully implemented, we would net $28.4 billion as a city by 2050, while zeroing out our emissions. We put in the work to develop the plan, we now need to fund it, make it understandable to the public, and communicate its benefits to engender widespread support.
Yes. This plan is an important part of the overall climate change strategy that needs to be implemented, and more importantly appropriately funded and supported.
