NZE

Burlington's Net Zero Energy goal is to reduce and eventually eliminate fossil fuel usage in heating and ground transportation.​

We will achieve this by reducing our total energy usage across electric, thermal and ground transportation while sourcing our entire energy supply for these sectors from renewables.

Transitioning away from carbon emitting fossil fuels has many environmental, social and economic benefits. For example, as we move away from fossil fuels and efficiently electrify our buildings and vehicles, we’ll reduce our city’s greenhouse emissions that lead to climate change, improve our air quality and public health, reduce congestion, and have safer and more comfortable homes and work spaces. Furthermore, by producing or securing more and more electricity closer to home, NZE will keep more dollars local, essentially growing the local economy and generating more local jobs.
