Pocatello City Council

The Pocatello City Council is affirming the city’s commitment to clean energy.

At Thursday’s city council meeting, council members approved a resolution that states Pocatello “will continue to take proactive steps to identify and enact policies that increase usage of clean and renewable energy and maximize energy conservation efforts with the intent of transitioning to a clean energy system.”

Also, the resolution states the city “will continue to work towards the creation of a task force” to further the goals of the resolution, and “City of Pocatello officials and employees will consider relevant city decisions in light of moving the City of Pocatello to clean energy including key city processes and plans.”

“As a city, we must always consider how we are impacting our environment,” said Pocatello Mayor Brian Blad. “With this resolution, we are asserting our commitment to clean energy, conserving resources, and increasing energy efficiency.”

The resolution also “supports Idaho Power’s commitment to all clean electricity by 2045.”
