Fresno is a city that has a great diversity of cultures and languages as well as a large disparity in resident incomes. As the population continues to grow, increased pressures are placed on the current transportation system, local economy, housing stock, energy infrastructure, and other existing resources, exacerbating the financial strain on many citizens.
In response, Energize Fresno wants to prioritize projects that address these pressures, increasing the community’s energy and water efficiency while streamlining traffic flow, deploying advanced clean energy technologies, and creating jobs and economic opportunity in Fresno. Energize Fresno will supplement Fresno’s efforts for change by consolidating the selection process of high-quality, cost-effective city projects that contribute to community prosperity through means of an Advanced Energy Community.
