Lynn Nilssen will be the guest speaker a give a presentation on the Sierra Club’s Ready for 100 national campaign, aimed at leveraging the power of cities to catalyze a transition toward renewable energy. Sarasota was the second city in the state to commit to 100% clean energy in 2017 and since then 8 more cities in Florida have committed and nationwide there are 150 cities and 6 states that have committed to a 100% clean energy future for all.

As part of our volunteer efforts the Sarasota Ready for 100 team is working with the city to help educate residents about what is being done in our community and nationwide to achieve a 100% clean energy future and what we can do as citizens to help.
