Nonprofit Wants Huntsville, Ala. to Achieve Net Zero Energy by 2025
Huntsville, Ala., is home to the US Army Corps of Engineers, Engineering and Support Center, which is active in helping the Army achieve its congressionally mandated energy goal of 25 percent production of energy from renewable sources by 2025.
Now, a new nonprofit in Huntsville – the Alabama Center for Sustainable Energy – wants to see the metro area of Huntsville, itself, transition to 100-percent clean energy by 2025 and Alabama by 2035. The Alabama Center for Sustainable Energy has dubbed its goal – NetZeroHSV (HSV is the abbreviation for the Huntsville airport).
Although the group is new and looking for funding, it is working with policy makers, businesses and utilities to help Alabama transition to more renewable energy, reports AL.com.
Daniel Tait, CEO of the nonprofit, said Alabamians are receptive to the idea of more renewable energy, especially if couched in terms of economic benefit.
