Climate Fellows Sam Ruderman and Meredith Anderson have returned as Civic Spark Fellows. Their Second term projects will move the needle on climate resolutions passed in Lake Tahoe. Specifically, they will continue to work on projects for the City of South Lake Tahoe and the Tahoe Regional Planning Agency as their primary local beneficiaries. In 2017, the City of South Lake Tahoe signed the 100% Renewable Resolution, which committed the City to a number of sustainability goals. First, it committed to achieving 50% municipal renewable energy 100% renewable electricity by 2032 and 100% renewable energy by 2050 in the community. Second, it committed to reducing emissions by 50% by 2030 and 80% by 2040. Lastly, it required the City to conduct updated greenhouse gas emissions inventories every three years. The City was the first to pass this resolution in the Sierra, paving the way for other jurisdictions to follow suite.
