Sustainability

Did you know? Phoenixville became the first Pennsylvania community to commit to 100% clean energy back in 2017!

Making the Commitment

In a 7 to 0 unanimous decision passed by our Borough Council on Tuesday, September 12, 2017, Phoenixville became the 44th municipality in the USA, and the first in PA to commit to a transition to 100% clean and renewable energy. Our goal is to complete the transition to clean energy by the year 2035. 

This resolution urges the community to use local, carbon-free, pollution-free renewable energy sources like:

  • Small-scale hydropower
  • Solar
  • Wind
