Resident Energy Survey

The recently concluded Resident Energy survey asked community members about their current investment and interest in renewable energy and energy efficiency projects at home and city-wide. Stay tuned for the results on our web page and Facebook!
100% Clean Energy Resolution
In March 2019, the City Council approved a resolution to pursue 100% clean energy to satisfy all municipal and community demand by 2040 and 2050, respectively. The resolution addresses issues of climate change and resiliency, along with the economic benefits of transitioning to renewables.

Leaf Management: Adopt a Storm Drain Project
Degrading leaves, left unattended during the fall season, produce phosphorous that contaminates our lakes. Preventing leaves from entering our storm drains keeps our water cleaner and healthier. To adopt your storm drain, visit our web page!
Waste Diversion at the Riverfront Redevelopment
Ever wonder if construction projects are concerned with reducing and reusing materials? Well, in Monona, we are! This project, completed in May 2018, was able to divert 87.9% of all non-hazardous materials from reaching a landfill. Read the report by clicking here!
