Park City, UTHome Menu
Park City has set North America’s most ambitious climate goals: to be net-zero carbon and run on 100% renewable electricity for City operations by 2022, and for the whole community by 2030.
The town also strives to be zero waste by 2030 and to become a leader in the transition to clean, reliable energy, a healthy environment, and sustainable community resources, including food, water, and housing.
In October 2019, Park City hosted the inaugural Mountain Towns 2030 Summit, which brought together elected officials and staff from 30 mountain towns, as well as ski industry leadership and environmental experts. Our aim is to have impact on climate change beyond our own boundaries.
The Main Strategies Park City is using to reach net-zero by 2030 are:
Focusing on net-zero for new buildings, deep energy retrofits, and waste management.
Replacing fossil fuel powered vehicles with electric, supplied with net-zero renewable electricity.
Ensure grid is supplied with enough renewable-generated electricity for Park City’s annual consumption. These renewable electric resources must replace and equivalent amount from the traditional grid.
Regenerating natural ecosystems and enhancing carbon sequestration so that our community can thrive.
